It's been a little while since I posted anything on here I know! But I have tried to keep up by reading others posts when I could. I last spoke about having the MRI scan which was the beginning of May, waiting for an appointment with the Endo specialist and praying that it was all good news. Long story short, it's not. In fact the news kind of sucks! Basically my appointment with the specialist kept getting pushed back and back, which unfortunately is no use to me right now as I was intending on leaving the country in September. (I have a temporary two year travel and work visa for Canada). Luckily the consultant was able to quickly look at my MRI results and in a cruel twist of fate I've been told the endometriosis is quite severe (all attached to my bowel which may or may not need a small resection itself) and needs surgery in order to remove it... Fantastic. In even worse news the wait to have it done on the NHS is NINE MONTHS!!! I kid you not. So obviously in my current situation I don't have nine months to sit around and wait (not that I would want to anyway) so I'm opting to have it done private. I have a consultation with the specialist this Thursday to discuss everything properly and hopefully get a date for my surgery (second one in 6 months yippee).
Has anyone else gone private for this operation? Or even if you had it done on the NHS, any insight would be helpful I have no idea how it will differ from my previous op - which was a cyst removal and laprascopy to confirm endo.
Thank you for reading, I know I babble on way too long in these things 😂 xx
