"I can't continue with this pain"

I was referred back in April and am still awaiting an appointment.
I called today only to be told that I will be likely to get an appointment at the end of September/beginning of October!
I was referred by my GP as I have a cyst on my ovary which is causing me great discomfort and at times, excruciating pain. This has put pressure on my partner and I as I cannot have sex due to the pain which can put a strain on a marriage. I have made a complaint to the hospital but I'm not confident it will do anything.
I have also contacted my doctors surgery to see if it can be expedited by them. I can't continue with this pain all the time and given that I already suffer from depression and anxiety, this is making things worse.
There doesn't seem to be any light at the end of this long, dark tunnel.
