I was referred by my OB/GYN of 17+ years to a specialist because I have adenomyosis and possibly endometriosis also. I had a Novasure ablation done in Aug of this year to stop the heavy bleeding and hope to stop the severe pain too. Long story short, I have NO bleeding now, just severe pain all month that has steadily been increasing. I have been told I need a hysterectomy and my doc referred me to this specialist, although she is an endocrinology/fertility OB/GYN, and she agrees and wants to do the DaVinci hyst. I assume he doesn't do this, only the abdominal and feels this would be much better for me. My problem. I saw the specialist on Monday this week, and she called on Wed and said we can book the surgery using DaVinci and her surgical secretary will call me. No call. I have to take percocet everyday the pain is so bad and was sent to the ER two weeks ago by OB for the pain. I call the office today and ask for the surgery lady (booking) and she was very rude right off the bat. I explained what I said above and how my doc referred me because I need the surgery soon and he cannot do it, also the da vinci.....she says, very rudely, I have not gotten to you yet!! I got your chart from the doctor yesterday!! I say ok, well I need to book it and understand it's the holidays and all, just need to book asap hoping for the beginning of January and she laughs and says I don't even know if I can get you in for January. I will have to call you back, and I don't know when, I may have to talk to the doctor. I spoke to my OB today and he said he will put in a call to her office to try to get her to schedule me sooner due to the pain, he also said I can squeeze you into MY surgery schedule, but then you would have to get the full abdominal hyst and I don't recommend that for you as the recovery is so much longer, and harder. That was prior to the rude lady at the specialists office. What do I do? Do I call him back and say this is not right, I don't know that I feel comfortable even having surgery now with this practice. The lady was beyond rude, and frankly the doctor is very full of herself and seems extremely busy. I know that if I were still gushing blood with this amount of pain they would act quicker, but because I had the ablation now I have no blood, just awful, debilitating pain. I have no quality of life, I am on a heating pad all day. I am so lost right now, don't know where to turn. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
