So today I had my second gynae appointment after waiting since March when I had my first! They gave me naproxen and told me to not come back before 5 months time, I’ve been waiting ever since August for an appointment. Anyway the naproxen didn’t touch the pain and I’ve just continued to get worse! I’m in pain day in day out, can just about walk and am shattered after a day at work! Along with irregular bleeding, pain when going to toilet etc. Anyway I had my appointment today, I was in the room no joke less than 5 mins! The consultant told me it was probably my pill. The pill that I’ve been on for 10 years with no problems until January of this year! Since then my issues have just worsened! She was rude, abrupt and dismissive! Luckily this time my mum came in with me and was more stubborn than me! So she said to her that my gp had advised I have all the classic signs of Endo and I warrant a laparoscopy especially as I will trying to start a family within a year or so. Before my mum had even finished her sentence the consultant pretty much huffed and puffed and rudely replied ‘well if that’s what you want!’
So I am now due to have a laparoscopy in 3 months time. I left the appointment almost feeling stupid and like I’m being dramatic about the whole situation! I’m now worried that if Endo isn’t found I’m just back to square one with no real support to find out my problem!
Just feel like I needed to vent and hear some advice I guess from others in similar situations x
