In November, I went to doctors complaining about passing a large lump from my vagina, and explained I was feeling strong stomach pains for about a week before I passed the lump. The doctor believed I may have appendicitis and sent me straight to hospital for a overnight stay. When I got there, the doctors believed I was in the wrong ward and said it looked like I had miscarried, but kept me in anyway. In the morning, the ward doctor was very rude because I was on his ward and told the doctors to get it sorted.
I had a ultra sound on the Sunday morning, and they told me I had a bicornate uterus, and said I would be referred to a specialist. I was put on a waiting list for a appointment, and then received my appointment for February, the specialist said I will need a hyperoscopy, a minor operation, to see if I have a bicornate or a septate, and to remove the septate if possible. I was put on another waiting list and received a appointment for April.
In April I went for my operation, I was booked in for 7.30, but did not go in till round 1. When I woke up, I thought they had not removed the septate as I did not feel much pain. But when my surgeon came round to talk to me about the operation, he said they had misdiagnosed me and I don't have a bicornate uterus, this made me angry as I still don't have no answers!
During my Pre op and before I went for surgery, no one did a pregnancy test to find out if I was pregnant, this angered me even more, as it came back as I don't have a bicornate and I could easily be pregnant as know one knows why I keep having recurrent miscarriages.
I don't have much trust in the nhs any more, I had my first miscarriage at 18 and had 4 miscarriages and 12 years down the line I still have no children and no answers why this keeps happening!
