Hi all! I had my first outpatient meeting with gynaecology yesterday, where I've been referred for a laparoscopy to try to diagnose and treat what's suspected bladder endo. Unfortunately with covid and the current nhs strain the wait times are likely over a year and no further treatment has been offered in the meantime, when even co-codamol on max dose isn't strong enough to help with the moderate-severe flair ups. I've also got the combined pill which doesn't do tons to improve my symptoms.
What would people in similar circumstances recommend, should I look at alternative therapies like investing in better heat products, or should I go to the GP in the meantime about exploring other pain management or hormonal medications?
