I am having my 3rd lap (just exploratory) next Tuesday. I got a phone call from the hospital and there was an cancellation and I suddenly get an appointment of lap. I have been having my chronic pelvic pain more than 10 years and had lap in 2006 and 2011(both just looking). Neither of the times endo wasn't found, well it wasn't suspected before so they weren't looking for it(?)
Since then I had Zoladex and during those months my pain was improved so they are suspecting endo. I have bleeding(freash red blood) with bowel movement only during my period. Sometimes blood on my poo... I have small piles but it wasn't bleeding from it (told by GP). I had MRI around my bowel area and the consultant said he didn't find any endo in my bowel. Can you see endo by MRI?
At 2011 lap they found dense adhesion in my right pelvic area where I get pain. They were suspecting endo between the adhesion.
I am having breathing difficultly and chest and upper back pain with my period. It is getting really bad last few months. Last one was really bad breathing problem. Just talking made me out of breathe. I finished my period for this month a few days ago and now I can run upstairs with no problem. My GP think I may have endo on my diaphragm.
I am going to tell all about this at my pre assessment tomorrow but do you have any advice? I am a bit panicy as this lap came too sudden. Well I have been waiting for a long time though but I was told it would be in November!
