Ok ladies so here's my story but to be perfectly honest I don't even know if I belong on this site!
So starting from the very beginning at the age of 20 I went to my GP because of excruciating pain in my lower right abdominal area. After a series of tests and an ultra sound I was told I had a small cyst on my right ovary and I would be referred to a gynaecologist and given painkillers. However there seemed to be a "mix up" and I was never referred. A year later I was still at my GP complaining of the pain. Eventually after going through all the tests from the precious year and MRI scans they had came to the conclusion I had a dermoid cyst on my right ovary and a cyst on my appendix so surgery was necessary and I went on the waiting list.
8 weeks ago I went in for surgery understanding that it would be open surgery to remove 2 cysts, my right ovary, my appendix and a part of my bowel. After waking from surgery they had actually removed the 2 cysts and my right ovary but decided not to touch my appendix (which I found rather strange to be honest) and they discovered I had endometriosis. However it seemed whenever I asked about the endometriosis no one could tell me anything about it. I returned to my GP to ask her for information about it and she said if I stay on my contraceptive pill for 3 month at a time then I shouldn't get any pain but my pain isn't when I'm on my period, that seems to be when I'm in the least pain!
I know it's only been 8 weeks and my body is still recovering but it's the exact pains I was getting before. I'm constantly tired and run down and when the pains aren't full on there's always a dull pain there. I suppose really I just don't know what the next step is? Or if its even endo I'm suffering from? I'm only 22 and I just feel I can't live my life the way I should be because of it.
Thanks for reading and I hope someone can give me a little help with this x
