Hello, this is my first post and I apologise in advance as I am at a crossroads and will be following either the no OC path or the OC path depending on investigative outcome. My situation is various symptoms (back pain, bloating, frequent urination, pain, nausea) which led to a US scan which has come back clear but makes reference to 8mm endometrial thickness and posterior fibroid. I have a climbing CA125 and a GP reluctant to arrange a CT scan to rule out OC and instead he wants to arrange a gastroscopy which in his words "could take ages" as such, I have decided to arrange a private CT scan with a referral from my GP. My question is this, late yesterday afternoon the GP surgery called advising they were sending the referral (after I had provided hospital details and a fax number) but they were asking who I want to review the scan.
I have no idea! I assumed the GP would arrange this once the results were passed to them. Is this usual practice? If not, who should be reviewing the scan? Sorry to post without a diagnosis, but I am very confused and feel a little let down by my GP, yes they were good at arranging an US and blood test, but now, I feel like I am in limbo and walking through custard having to arrange these (hopefully rule out) tests myself.
Thank you all in advance.
