oh no, that sounds horrible, and id be upset. You haven't been dumped, its just really unfortunate and unhelpful for you. Can you contact the specialist endo nurse? or else try pain team?

I called her she said they are aware I should have been seen. It's just waiting for someone to take my case on. Thank you. I will keep trying. X

I'm so sorry to hear this : ( I'd go back to your GP and see if you can get another referral? Explain what's happened and see if you can get any support. That sounds so frustrating to be in a situation like this, seems totally out of order that you can just be left like that. Best of luck.

Thank you. Maybe the gp can help. I will look into it. I didn't think of that once it's at the hospital. Thanks very much. It's nice to know I am not alone. Xx

If your original referral came from your gp I'm sure they can sort out another one for you :) a good gp can be really supportive, especially when your pain is bad :( are you diagnosed with endometriosis or trying to get a diagnosis?

I have endometriosis and adenymyosis with polycystic ovary syndrome. Sorry if I spelt things wrong. I hope you understand what I say. I will go see my gp. I will call them in the morning. Thank you so much. Xx

Same here, according to my last ultrasound! If you need names for new consultants, try the BSGE list of endo centres

Wow never heard of them will definitely look in to that. I hope you are ok. Take care of yourself. Thanks so very much. Xx

It's the accrediting body for endometriosis treatment, my current consultant is BSGE accredited and absolutely amazing! Thank you, and you xxx hope things get sorted soon

Sorry to hear this. The same happened to me, I had to call the hospital & was given a choice of two other consultants to see. Could be worth calling if you haven’t already? Hope you get somewhere soon xx

Thank you so much. I do appreciate your reply. I got first diagnosed 15 years ago. Been back and fourth to gp over the years and this was my first consultant in years and I only seen him once and now I have been dropped. I think maybe if I keep calling them I will get somewhere. Thank you. Xx
