When you have been referred for a laparoscopy have you seen a consultant who specialises in endometriosis? The consultant I was referred to by the doctor doesn't even appear on the NHS trust website which lists all of the consultants and their specialties... which has worried me somewhat.
I'd like to see somebody who really knows what they are doing when it comes to endometriosis but don't know how to go about it. I've looked into paying privately but the feedback has been that without knowing the extent of the endometriosis it's difficult to predict the cost.
I'm at a loss as to what to do next. I don't want to wait any longer than necessary for a laparoscopy, but I do want to see somebody who isn't just a general gynae consultant as I'm not sure this would really give the best treatment (and the person I saw initially and have now been referred back to really didn't fill me with confidence for a number of reasons, although I suppose if I ever get another appointment I can ask more questions).
