Hi everyone, hope you are all doing good (or even just ok!)
I have just returned from an appointment with my health centre, they couldnt give me my own GP so i had a locum. I have been called for jury duty next week and i really cant face it! i am so run down and sore plus my bowels have been playing up so the thought of being in a court and needin to run to the loo isnt pleasant!!
I asked if he would give me a note to excuse me and explained why...He was so rude! told me that he would not give me a note as Endometriosis is not an relevant health issue to be excused and that he would not put his name to something that could have him charged with contempt of court!!?? I tried to explain my bowel problem and how it was stuck to my pelvis area causing pain and toilet issues, he offered me fybrogel!!! i asked him to please look at my notes as it was all there, letters from my gyna and previous treatments etc....he glanced at it and said "as i dont know you, you need to see your own GP" By this time i was in tears and i still am, i have so had enough of feeling like a hypocondriac! I am to weak to keep fighting people with this, sorry to rant but so sick of being in pain and being dismissed...as we all are i know!
Anyway he was a young locum, so just goes to show nothing new is being taught with regard to endo at med school sadly!
Thanks for listening ladies, really needed to speak to someone who understands.
