I had my gyno referral on Sunday and they told me 4 months…I have had the surgery before and confirmed diagnosis of endo.

I went private the first time to fit it between uni and the whole process was very quick

I’m in Kent and I was put on the list end of November 2020 for my first surgery and only had it last week Monday. Yeah and when I called before to get an idea of waiting times I was advised 94 weeks waiting time.

I have my lap on Monday at long last. From being put on the list to having it done, it’ll be 66 weeks. My case was upgraded in priority back in January but don’t think that made much difference

I have been waiting since November. I have been at the top of the list for months. This is for excision on what my consultant thinks is severe endo. I had my first lap in 2016 and my second on 2019. Those surgeries were both ablation.
