I’ve done a similar post before but am still confused.
A while ago I had a second internal scan done and after a while the doctors agreed it looked like endo.
I asked my GP to be referred to the endo specialist to get it confirmed and talk through options, but was told by the GP unless I specifically wanted surgery to remove the endo then there was no point. She told me the scan had confirmed I had endo, and she put me on a pill to control symptoms (Yacella). I thought great, done and dusted, I have endo I need to deal with it and take my pill.
Yesterday I went for a second colposcopy for the investigation into why I have pain and bleeding during and after sex. The doctor was extremely confused how I’d been given a diagnosis without a laparoscopy, he told me I would need one for an endo diagnosis.
So I’m confused as to whether I should be pushing to see the specialist or not?
My aim is not to have surgery if I can avoid it as I’ve heard it can make it worse by leaving more scars, and I believe it can be controlled for now, but I want an actual diagnosis if I’ve not been given one?
I’d appreciate any help anyone can offer me please!
