Hi, hope you’re all well! I had excision/diagnostic surgery just under 2 weeks ago and had endometriosis excised from the POD. My recovery has been slow, but I’m starting to eat a lot more than I have in the past 9 months and THINK I feel better (I’m still very fatigued/still slightly poorly after surgery so it’s hard to tell!). I’m not getting the daily morning sickness/diarrhoea anymore anyway so life is sweet!
My consultant is a top endometriosis specialist, so I expected a bit more in terms of follow up. Luckily I did a lot of research on endo, so I’m not completely lost after diagnosis... but it’d still be good to have a follow up appointment regardless. He came to speak to me after the surgery and explained briefly what he found (LOADS of blood floating around my abdomen apparently 🤮), but this was 2 mins tops.
I’ve just received a letter from the consultant explaining that it might take several months for me to feel better, so therefore he’ll see me in October. Is this standard practice? I would’ve expected a post-op appointment maybe a month after? I had one that was made for me in less than 2 weeks time but then the hospital cancelled it after I received this recent letter from the consultant.
Thanks for reading!
