I'm sorry you are suffering so bad
It is ok to vent
Can I ask if you have a pelvic ultrasound?
did they check for endometriosis?
They might have not checked for that
That is correct only a GYN can find it
but usually they need to cut and go inside and look
kind of gruesome but that is what they do
is this helpful?
cut and look inside
like a laparoscopy where they make the small holes
I have to sign off for a bit
I will get back on when I get home. probably 1/2 hour
The system says that you requested another expert.
The other expert is correct that they may need to look inside surgically, as that is the definitive test for endometriosis. However, the doctor would usually try other tests first before accepting that surgery needs to be done.
It is true that someone coming off Percocet may have abdominal pain, but it is usually primarily from the gut, rather than from the female genital tract.
It is appropriate that the next step would be to go to this next appointment.
