Left to suffer

Postby abbymae91 on Wed Mar 11, 2015 3:50 pm

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis via Laparascopy in 2011 where they lasered it off. Since then I have not seen a gynaecologist and despite constant pain they refuse to refer me back as they do not believe this is gynaecological. I also suffer from Crohns Disease and know the pains can be similar, however my Gastroenterologist says the pain is unlikely my Crohns at the minute. Should I still be seeing a specialist? I feel like I don't get taken seriously for my Endometriosis.

If you are still having pain which is not thought to be due to Crohn's then certainly ask to be referred back. You may need a further laparoscopy, or imaging such as an MRI scan may be helpful.
