I am seeing Tyrone Carpenter at Dorset Endometriosis Centre on Monday and am so desperate for the appt - but I am concerned that I am expecting too much - considering anything that happens afterwards will have to be on the NHS. Would be really helpful to have an idea of how long the appt is likely to go on for and what to expect? Thankyou
What should I expect of my first consulta... - Endometriosis UK
Hi. That is great you are getting to speak to a specialist. I don't live in Dorset so have no knowledge or experience of the mentioned specialist.
When I saw a Gyno, they basically asked me about my symptoms, felt my pelvic area, did a cervical examination and smear. Then discussed pain relief. I was in for about 30 mins approx. But I am sure everyone's first appointment may differ.
Hope all goes well for you xx
Thanks squidgy, gynae hav done lap etc but i still have pain x
I have heard on here that some ladies have had more than 1 Lap. So if you have only had one they may suggest try another to remove more of the endo? Or I guess they may suggest other pain relief. Or they could be useless and look at you as if to say "what do you expect me to do about it?..get on with it!". I hope it is not the latter and I doubt it should be as u seeing a specialist.
I hope all goes well on Monday for you x
