I had my laparoscopy 2 weeks ago when they finally diagnosed me with endometriosis. It took 3 hours in surgery to remove it. My bladder was stuck to my Bowel, my ovary was stuck to my pelvis, my Fallopian tube had twisted and there was tissue that was twisted on my appendix and I had endometriosis literally everywhere..on my Bowel, bladder, ovaries, pelvic wall, both tubes, uterus. They fitted the Mirena coil which I am hating. I am still bleeding and I'm having really severe cramps that morphine won't ease. My incisions don't even hurt it's like really horrendous period pain constant. Today I went through 13 pads from bleeding. My question is how do I get referred to pain management and a nutritionist when my GP is refusing to help? I've rang 3 times since my laparoscopy. First time was 4 days after surgery I still couldn't urinate, the second was 7 days after because one incision leaked a lot of blood after a Bowel movement and then I saw her 4 days ago because she called me in. I asked her if all this was normal for the coil and in her own works 'you are doing my head in and I cannot cope with your demands and constant calling the surgery yup. Youvhsbe had major surgery you'll be in pain you have to deal with it' yes I wanted to fly over the table and punch her considering she told me for 3 years (and still is even though I've been diagnosed) that it's all psychological and there's no way I've experienced the amount of pain I'm letting on!!! 😡😡😡 what do I do like how do I get the support and get referred to pain management when she point blank refused to see me over endometriosis pain. It's not like I can change GPS because it's the only one in the area for me to go too because others won't take me because I'm too far from them or not in their postal code distance to have me as a patient. I just need some advice on what I should do. It's not like I can see another Gp in my practice because they are all so close as friends once one forms an opinion they all do I'm so stuck right now. Alls I want is to know if all this pain and bleeding from the coil is actually normal and it will settle down in time or if it's my body rejecting it as I also have a high fever and 2... how do I see a pain management specialist without a GP referral is it possible.. I live in the UK so most specialists have to have a referral for me to be seen 😭😭😭😭😭😭
