I appreciate it will vary from geographical area to area but I was just hoping to get an idea of how long other ladies have waited for. Thanks.
How long did you wait to see a gynaecolog... - Endometriosis UK
Well I’d been going in and out of hospital and the doctors for different tests and scans... I first met my gynaecologist consultant last month (22nd of February) that will be doing my very first Laparoscopy for a diagnosis this month (21st March) but the doctors finally referred me to get a Laparoscopy in December 2018 ... I think it all depends on where you are in the world ... talk to your doctor about meeting a gynae ...
Hope you don’t have to long to wait xx
Referred by GP end of October. Saw hospital doctor mid January (not a consultant and sadly very poor quality of care - so much so that I've since decided to go private).
Hi, did you ask to see the consultant? Often you have to push a bit. The clinics are largely staffed by junior doctors, working under the supervision of a consultant. If they can’t answer your questions, then it’s perfectly legitimate to ask to see the consultant. Sometimes this is possible on the day, sometimes it requires another appointment.
Yes - there was no consultant in clinic, and I was given the choice between:
a) suck it up and see the registrar
b) discharge back to GP
I've been waiting since September and have been informed there is at least 6 months further wait time........
I paid privately and got seen within a day! It was about £150, which was more than I really could afford at the time but it was the best thing I ever did! The consultant was the only person that’s ever listened to me. He then did my lap on the NHS so I got the rest of his treatment for free. I would definitely recommend as it’s worth every penny. With endo, it gets worse every month, so long waiting lists really aren’t good XX
