"Misdiagnosed and sent home...."
Posted by warmwr78 (as ),
I was recently hospitalised due to ongoing severe pelvic pains & abdominal pains.
I was in hospital for a total of 4 days & in between i had a CT Scan & MRI Scan & to try and determine what the problem was.
The CT Scan showed no abdominal problems so that's when the MRI was issued to rule out any pelvic problems as they said it looked like possible PID from the CT scan.
The results from the MRI were then sent over to the gynaecology department to have a look and they said that they had came back all clear and the suspected PID was actually my ovaries ovulating?
I was then able to go home the next day with the pains being put down to a bad IBS flare-up.
Even though ive had IBS for years and never experienced anything like it.
A week later i decided to still go to the original appointment made by my GP from months before for the Ultrasound to try and see what the problem was.I asked the nurse if the ultrasound was needed & she said it wouldnt be considering a week before i had just had to X2 scans done and they had came back ALL clear and my results would be the same from the other 2 scans but still to go ahead with the ultrasound considering im here.
So i recieved my results back yesterday....
And my GP is now saying it looks like i have PCOS and they have referred me back over to the gynaecologly department for more blood tests and to investigate further considering i had my bloods taking daily when i was in hospital & was just told a week prior i was all ok! Now am not??
Coming home from hospital i changed my diet 360 to help with the IBS but the pelvic pain is still there every single day. And as well as another X-ray appointment next week for another health issue i am really at my wits end with it all , No wonder ive been put on antidepressants in the last week. i just dont understand how something like this could have been missed and put down to "bowel problems" when it was seamly so clear from a 2 second ultrasound that was done.
Now i dont know what scan is right or wrong or whats went on!? I am glad i went with my gut and still went for the ultrasound as i wouldnt have been any the wiser to what is causing this pain.... :(
