Hi. Hoping for some advice as not usually a forum user!
I've been having pain in my left side for a while but I kept going until July when I thought I'd better get it checked. GP referred me for a scan which I had on 06 September and identified a 20cm cyst on my left ovary who advised I get referred to gyno for resolution. I had to go back to GP to get referred.
The appointment for NHS seem to take forever to come through (the online system used never had anything available) and because of my concern I decided to see a private gyno who also practises NHS. He confirmed my worse fears that id need an operation and that I'd loose my left ovary. He advised me to go back to GP for blood test and go back to NHS referral.
So here I am 2 months down the line and still don't seem to have got any further. I am on the waiting list for an NHS app for a gyno who will basically tell me the same thing that I need an operation. The pain and discomfort has become increasing worse and I now have pain in my right side so am very concerned about my right ovary. I went to the GP today as it's becoming unbearable and all I was given was pain relief and told that they don't know why I am seeing another gynaecologist when I need an operation. There is nothing they can do and unless I am unable to pass urine and have a no well movement I just have to wait it out.
I am very concerned. I am 29 without kids. I can live with the discomfort I guess I appreciate you can't jump the queue and there's people out there with far more serious issues. But I am very scared to loose both ovaries and can't believe this is how they deal
With patients. I have never had any health issues before and hate feeling for helpless
