Dear sisters,
I am so glad I have you here!
I have been trying for the longest time to make right decision whether should I have hyst or not. My problem was that doctor is not sure if it will help me. So I decided to go and consult endo specialist, thinking he should know better. Do you know what he said? He had never heard of my symptoms (constant abdominal pain even while I am on Depo and pain with intercourse). He said since I am on Depo I should be pain free. So he thinks I should see a sex therapist. I flipped. OK, if sex therapist will help with finding more comfortable position (as if my husband and I did not have enough time to do that in the past 16 years), what about abdominal pain that increases with the pressure (seat belts, jeans). He said he does not know. And he did not seem interested to find out. I walked out crying, and I cried for good 15 minutes in the car. Than I made my decision. I will soon let you know when is my date with the famous castle.
Thank you for being here and listening!
I love you all!

A doc that never heard of those complaints? I am very surprised, as those seem pretty classic from posts I've seen here. Sorry that you had such a bad experience! Keep us posted on your castle date.

Thank you Gee,
I was surprised to hear that too especially because he was suppose to be endo specialist. I had my laparascopy details with me and I was hoping to hear a suggestion for a treatment or opinion on hysterectomy. However, I walked out without either one. My husband said that he is sorry that insurance will actually pay this guy for that visit. I am also sorry for other women that will rely on his opinion.

I am so sorry to hear about your experience. That is just down right folish. I can't beleive this doc did not even do some test to see if there was something wrong. Have you tried seeing another one just to get a normal response. This doc must be married to a sex theripist or something. good luck to you and make sure you uncover all of the options before making your final decision.

Nela, maybe that "endo" specialist was really an "endoscopy" specialist -- you know, specializing in throats? (just kidding) 'Cuz otherwise, he's just plain ignorant!

Seriously, it's scary how little some docs know about their fields. I went to a gastroenterologist who basically told me it was pointless to do more tests for my symptoms 'cuz they wouldn't show anything, that he didn't know what was wrong and couldn't figure it out, and that I'd keep having these severe toxic reactions where I got so sick I could barely eat or walk for a week. All this after like 2 visits, a stool culture, and a blood test done while I was having a reaction. He never even mentioned checking into endo.

Just because someone's a specialist doesn't mean they're competent.

You are right Lisa, sometimes all they need diploma for is to hang it on the wall. They never look in to the new medicine journals, and they get bored with their jobs, just like anyone else. The difference is, they are dealing with peoples health.
