I was diagnosed with endo via laparoscopy in October 2010 (after a year or more of complaining to my GP of pain). They offered for me to have it taken away via another operation but I chose to try taking the pill continuously first to see if it helped with the pain. Regardless of not having periods, the pain was still too much and eventually I could not handle it any more and I had my second laparoscopy in November 2011 and they removed the endo.
When I came round, the registrar came to see me just to say 'The endometriosis has spread and we managed to remove two area's'. I wasn't told where from and all she said is that my consultant wanted to see me in six weeks time which should have worked out to Christmas week, however my consultant had Christmas and New Year booked off so my appointment is not until the 19th January.
I have recently had pain in the same area as I did before, not as bad but still noticable. I also have been suffering from constipation one minute and diarrhea the next. I am constantly tired and will get home from work and sleep straight away. I am only 21 and feel old before my time! Is this related to the endo? Is it worth mentioning at my appointment next week? I worry now whenever I experience new symptoms as I have never really suffered with health issues before, but now it seems to be one thing after another. I guess my fear is that it is now affecting my bowels..
Any advice/opinions welcome!
