I had my consultation yesterday and I need a CA 125 blood test, MRI and surgery. As my consultation was private, I need the blood test from my GP, and to be referred out to a NHS gynaecologist/endo specialist, to then have a consultation, to then have an MRI, to then have surgery...Essentially I'm looking at months of waiting. I'm grateful to have access to the NHS, but I am struggling with how much of this out of my control, and how many more painful periods I'm going to have to suffer through but I even get to my next specialist. I'm getting married at the end of November and I'm worried about my surgery being near the date.
How do you manage the helpless feeling of just waiting and waiting and waiting (and suffering)?
