Have you been examined?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
My Dr felt my stomach and said it's sounds like a prolapse however 40 week wait for a scan meanwhile I'm just left to get on with it and it sheer utter pain
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 16 days ago.

You need a vaginal examination too. An abdominal examination wont tell you much information

But with vaginal, you can actually see the prolapse without the need for a scan.

You need to go back to your Dr to request this exam to be done. Usually you're laid on your left, a speculum is inserted and you push down similar to pushing a baby, and if prolapse , your Dr should feel or see something.

Yeah I've been to my Dr four times already with this issues and was given painkillers and told to contact thr incontence clinic and self refer to there where they also have a waiting list
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 16 days ago.

Your second option will be for your Dr to actually refer you to gynaecology, however if long waiting lisr also as I suspect, you can consider going privately if affordable.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Yeah I fear going private is my only option because the pain I've got is next level just sitting down is uncomfortable and walking is worse I've had to take a week off work
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 16 days ago.

I think that will have to be the next step, do you have private cover?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I don't have any cover I don't even know if there is anything my work do with perks at work
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 16 days ago.

You should find out at work, but then you could be waiting 3 months before you're allowed to use your cover as pre-existing problem

If thats the case,  you should look locally for private gynaecologist

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
