I have suffered with awful pelvic pain for about ten years. Have had many examinations and tests and medications which have not resulted in any improvement. The pain kind of came to a head a few days ago and I found a lump down below which my own gp had referred me to gynae before about but nothing was picked up. Quite a few appointments I had at gynae were rescheduled and I even got an appointment which I turned up for but the consultant couldnt deal with me as I was under a different consultant already so I was sent home, given a new appointment where a possible removal of my ovaries at some point was discussed after trying a bit longer with an injection which brings on menopause. I chose not to have the injection again so ended up being told I likely have vulvodemia. My vagina is fine but part of my back passage has collapsed and is now poking through my vagina. I have never had a rectal examination so maybe this could have been found a long time ago. I am in constant pain and now likely will have to wait even longer for surgery to repair this as my doc is trying to get me in on a cancellation. I would rather not have the same consultant as I found her quite intimidating and didnt feel listened to properly but on a plus side, the nursing staff are terrific.
