I am new to this site and to the world of endo. I was recently diagnosed with endo after an elective laparoscopy. I have been suffering extreme abdominal pains for the past 2 1/2 - 3 months. I have been in and out of hospital and been tested for various bowel conditions. After the lap I was told that I have large areas of adhesions on the right side and a black spot of endo on the left side. They have left the adhesions and endo be for now as they believe that they will just grow back. I am waiting to receive an appointment to see a gynae after being diagnosed 3 weeks ago and for now have been moved to a new pill (dianette) and am taking a new type of painkiller (like tramadol but without the sleepy side effects).
I also have cysts on my ovaries (first discovered when I was 16) and have been on the pill since I was 14. My cysts have grown and so has the endo. I used to take cilest but this gave me migraines. I tried cerazette for a couple of years and have now been taking dianette for two months. I am 28 next week and worry about my chances of conceiving. I have made many changes to my lifestyle over the years to prevent my condition from progressing - losing over 5 1/2 stone (low gi diet /healthy eating), taking up exercise and generally becoming more active and health conscious. I hope that a good gynae will be able to help me prevent the rapid spread of endo and adhesions and be able to help me choose the right method of treatment for me.....at the moment, I am a bit lost
