Hi ladies, just looking for some more help/advice please?
I've just had my fourth excision surgery lap & dye for endometriosis on Friday 20th Nov and was supposed to be having my Fallopian tubes removed ready to start IVF as I was told 2 years ago during my last laparoscopy that my left tube was completely blocked and my right tube was mostly blocked as was 'sluggish' and only had a very slow drip with the dye test.
I awoke from my surgery to find that they didn't remove either of my tubes as have found that my left tube is not blocked at all and they don't think it ever was. My right tube is still sluggish with a slow drip. Instead they THINK that I have a wall within my womb, a septate uterus. But they didn't investigate this further during my laparascopy as they said they couldn't because they didn't have consent to.
So now I have to wait another month (in NHS terms this means at least 2!) to go back to have a scan to see if I do have this wall in my womb. Then if I have, then I will have to have another operation to remove this wall before we can move forward with anything else. (I had to wait 9 months for the date for this surgery I've just had).
I'm frustrated because I don't understand how this wasn't picked up two years ago?! And feel I've had the last two years of my life wasted. I've been led to believe that my tubes are blocked and no good when this isn't the case at all now. We've been ttc for years and this just feels like another huge set back.
I don't even know how I should feel now but the doctors just don't seem to care at all!! It was just very much a shrug of the shoulders and 'oh well this is how it is now' no apology or any attempt of an explanation at all, nothing. I'm so fed up and disheartened. This was supposed to be our final step before starting IVF but now it's another set back and a waiting game waiting for the NHS to book our next appointments. It's ALWAYS MONTHS between each appointment for us and I can just see another year flying by before anything else is even done.
Any advice or tips, help or understanding would be massively appreciated.
Thanks for listening to me moan!! xxxxx
