Have not been on here for a few weeks so just though would show my face
Its been 3 weeks now since I had my Lap, cannot believe how time flies. My mood has not really improved I am back at work and a bit depressed so struggling emotionally at the moment still. I am still having bad symptoms to but still keeping my diary and hoping to go see a specialist real soon and get a second opinion, at first I was not going to and was just going to accept its IBS like the GP has pounded into my head but now I feel why should I leave it at that if I don't feel right I need that second opinion, although when I mentioned seeing a private specialist to my GP she told me not to bother wasting my money, At the moment she has put me on some movicol which I don't feel I need but she said its good for IBS I am going back to see her in 2 weeks, she says if the movicol don't improve my symptoms then it looks like I am been sent for sex therapy grrr.
So I have been thinking, way before I had my Lap the GP told me to start taking my pill 3 months in a row and then have a break so I have been doing this for the past year or so. I read somewhere that the pill is used to treat endometriosis symptoms so I thought if I have been Taking my pill none stop for the past year and only had a break after every 3 months would this of reduced the endo meaning it is less visible during the Lap maybe, and when I go see this specialist will he want to do another Lap if so would it be better if I came of the pill for a while before I had another Lap done.
I am still a bit confused to be honest I feel like it isn’t IBS and I need that second opinion but then I think if I go and see this specialist and its not endo I will feel so stupid and look like it was all in my head all along. Has anyone else been misdiagnosed the first few times but then turned out it was endo all along. x
