I finally managed to meet with a gynaecologist last month after a four month wait on an 'urgent' referral. He said I needed a lap and it would be about 6 months wait, but he'd put me on the cancellation list.
I phoned his secretary today, and she said his waiting list is 10 months! Apparently they rarely get cancellations, and I'm 'about halfway' down the cancellation list, whatever that means.
I can't deal with this for another 9 months. I'm missing uni and work, I can't go a day without codeine, which is making me really constipated (tmi), but I'm scared to take the laxatives they've given me because the pain in unreal when I do. Last time I passed out (not that the GP cared)!
I'm just at the end of the road. I phoned loads of different private insurers today, but none will give me cover for a lap because although I'm not diagnosed it's considered a 'pre-existing condition'. I'm now considering just taking out a loan, but it's so expensive!
So, have any of you ladies gone private for your laps? How much did it cost? Is it worth it?
Sorry for such a long post, I'm just really at a loss right now...
