Saw consultant on Wednesday, I think he’s a general gynaecologist consultant, he’s agreed to do a laparoscopy (to look for endo) and laparotomy (to remove lump in abdominal wall) but I’m not feeling confident. I explained that I was concerned because of bowel and sciatic symptoms which he told me wouldn’t be caused by endo and therefore doesn’t think he’ll find any. He had a lot of answers for what it wasn’t but nothing to explain what it could be instead. He was very vague about my mri results and avoided explaining what they were looking for or what they found/saw.
He had no idea of my medical history and just seemed to focus on the lump.
For me the lump is secondary to the symptoms I’m experiencing which the gp and jnr gynaecologist say all point to endo. Where as he doesn’t seem interested in that idea at all.
Do I go for the suggested procedures, see what they say before asking for a second opinion?
Feeling deflated when I expected the appointment to shed a little light.
