Update from GP Appt.

Well, I went to my new GP this morning, I found him by accident when my local DR's office was having electrical problems they sent me to him as a backup. He was so wonderful that I changed to that office(it's really close to my job too).

He was so great, I explained all the stuff that was going on, especially the pain returning. He didn't agree at all with my GYN concerning the Lupron, due to the fact that there was no indication on any of my pathology reports of endo from my most previous surgery or my hyst. He said he thought it would put me through misery for no apparent reason. BC pills in his opinion weren't an option either due to breast issues. I told him GYN had made the comment about going back in after the ovary, he also disagreed, if it was perfectly normal why do I want to lose my natural hormone provider and be put through another surgery especially with the adhesion history??

I discussed the therapy I was going to try, he commented that he didn't know if it would be helpful but it was definitely worth the try. He has given me a referral to a Chronic Pain Specialist(GYN field) at the University near me. He has lots of faith in these specialist and says he would like to see them determine what would be the next step in my medical care.

Can I just tell you I was ing before I left his office and he said he was sorry for all I was going through. He said that this DR would want to see me and talk to me because he specializes in this arena. He could understand that I was probably a problem my local GYN just didn't have the time to handle(his words not mine) nothing against him.

I called today to make an appt. they are sending out a 10 page questionare and I have to get all my medical records for the last 10 years to them before they will call me back to schedule I don't care how many hoops I have to jump through if I can find some sort of resolution especially a medical professional that is ready and waiting to help me.

s to all,

Oh (((((Darlene))))))) (((((sweetie))))) I'm so sorry you've been having such a hard time. This new doctor sounds like he's a gem and definately a keeping.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Pelvic Pain specialists are going to prove the right approach for you.

Hopefully, sweetie, there is at the end of the tunnel.
