I was told by gyne that endo only really shows up between bowel and womb, except I had a hysterectomy 12 years ago! Since my insides were a complete mess and they had todoa partial colonoscopy. Am feeling very down since I feel I'm not being taken seriously although I've lived with endo for 24 years. He didn't take any notice of my exstesive history and the fact that they couldnt remove all endo on my last op. Nor did he take notice that when they put me on hrt last year all my old symptoms came back with avengence to the stage i stopped taking it. I told him I had shooting pains from groin down to knee which he told me was a nerve trapped but when mentioned it went Away when taking cerrozette he couldn't answer that! Also when i mentioned lower back pain I got told its my ostoprosis playing up! All he will offer is the pain clinic. And to top it off he offered me estrogen cream so I can have normal relations with my husband!
I'm 40 years old and I feel my life's over. My day consists of; husband makes me a coffee so can take pain killers, wait for them to kick in before i can go down stairs, then spend rest of day curled up on sofa and if im really lucky i mite be able to be normal and go a friends for coffee! Im not even able to eat properly since my bowels agony all the time and am dreading Christmas dinner at my mums since don't want to look like im being picky.
Sorry for rant had to get it off my chest. Not sure which way to turn now : -(
Hope your all having a better day
