    Yeah I guess I would be waiting either way. If I paid to go through a private gynae and they refer me to the public hospital for a laprascopy I would still be on the waiting list for that....maybe if I initially see the public hospital gynae the wait for the surgery would be quicker....
    Going to call them this morning and ask about how long the wait is and them go to my GP tomorrow to ask to be referred there instead, hopefully he doesn't have a problem with that!

If only it was that easy for us all!
    Go to your go first get the referral. Than go to ed when it is bad as that can bump you up the list. Making your wait time shorter.

    Good news! I just called the gynae clinic to ask about the wait and she told me 4 months but then asked me about my symptoms. When I told her she said she can refer me to the pelvic pain clinic and I got an appointment for in 6 weeks time

    That's great! Did u speak to a nurse? Sometimes they are better to deal with. More caring in a a sense cause u get ro speak to them directly much more easily than a doctor. Bit 4 mths is still good publically!
