I wonder if anyone else has any experience that could be helpful for me. Sorry this is a bit of a long one.
My husband as azoospermia, we don't know the cause. After our first meeting at the assisted fertility dept in January, the dr we saw said my husband would need to see another urologist to determine what our next steps would be. She advised that we see the urologist privately as the wait for the NHS was very long (it would be the same urologist either way). We did that, and the urologist said my husband would need an MRI to find the exact cause. He said he would put in a referral for my husband to get this on the NHS.
Four weeks later, we have no referral, we are not even on the waiting list yet. The urologist's private secretary knows very little about the NHS and can't give us any details. I'm kind of going mad, are we lost in the system? We paid to speed things up but now don't seem to be on any path.
I could pay for a private MRI, which I don't mind doing, but then how do I know I can integrate the two systems at that point.
I'd be so grateful for any advice or even just sympathy on this very long, emotionally charged road.
