I'm new on here.. Hi
I have been experiencing on going pelvic pains for the past 5 months, and the last month it has become more severe. Recently been getting severe back pains too, so been in and out of doctors / hospital enquiring all of this.
Doctor's suspect is endometriosis after all the tests and examinations I have had done. And have told me the next step for me is a laparoscopy.
I am currently waiting for my gynaecology referral appointment, but I feel like I'm just going to get reassessed and will have to wait longer for further examination.
Which is quite inconvenient as I've already been off work sick for nearly 4 weeks now, as I'm unable to sit up for a whole day and these painkillers are making me so drowsy and lightheaded.
Basically what I'm looking for is second and third opinions of my situation, and other experiences of how long people waited and whether anyone knows any tips on how to get seen quicker, please
Any comments / help / tips would be greatly appreciated.
