|23-8-2011 - Polycystic Ovaries, Endometriosis and Cervical Erosion
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Been a while since I have written a blog! I have been so busy it is unreal. Although right now I feel I need to vent, get things off my mind and this place has always been great for that.
Back In March I went to my GP because of pains and intermenstral bleeding, he was an idiot and was saying I had IBS, which I knew I didnt call it womans intuition. He told me that he would book me in to see a gynaecoligist and to call back in a few weeks. I called him back as instructed and as it turned out he never even made the referral! He said that I had to have a scan first so I had to wait a few more weeks finally had the scan and was told everything was perfectly fine. I went back to my GP and he said he was still going to refer me.
A few more weeks later and an official complaint I finally got my appointment. Luckily for me it was with a private hospital (funded by the NHS) I had my appointment on Thursday 18th August the Dr was lovely he said I had cervical erosion but wanted me to have a scan done. I told him I had one done already but he insisted I had another so that was booked the Saturday 20th During the scan he asked what day in to my cycle I was. He told me the lining was very thick should only have been 8mm to 10mm but mine was 14mm he suggested I may have endometriosis.
He then scanned my right ovary and showed me the grey part was the ovary and the black dots were cysts and then told me I had mild polycystic ovaries. He then moved to the left ovary which was rather painful, he said he was having trouble finding it. He did find something large and black on the screen and was measuring it. He didnt say anything about and at the time neither did I.
Afterwards he said he wanted to do a biopssy of the lining of my uterus and strip away the lining and also do a laparoscopy to check my left ovary. This is being done tomorrow Wednesday 24th. It has happened all so fact. 6 days from consultation to scan to operation. The NHS would have taken 6 months!
I am a little bit nervous but more so because of going to sleep and the needles rather than the op itself. Also the pain afterwards. Loads of people have said that the gas they use to inflate your abdomen feels like trapped wind lol, fun!
I just cant believe my luck sometimes. Not as if having Kidney disease was enough! Looks like having any more children is off the cards although I still live in hope.
Anyway hope you are all well and your bumps, babies and toddlers are well xxxxx
