Firstly can I just say how great it was to find this forum, as I don't know anyone with experience of endo! My story is that I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Endo last Friday after my first lap. I was shocked that it had gotten so bad. I'd been having classic endo symptoms for years and been to so many doctors but still no-one had suggested endo.
I'm 28 and last November I got married. My dream is to have a family. The consultant said that despite the endo both of my tubes were fine. However he did say that because of the seriousness of the endo it could spread, and if we are thinking about having a baby we shouldn't wait. My consultant has prescribed me a 4 month course of Zoladex and I have to have another lap in 3 months. We can't start trying for a baby until after all of my treatment.
All I can think about right now is whether we'll be able to have a baby, when I really should be concentrating on myself and my recovery. It's like I don't even care about myself - all I care about is conceiving. I was even thinking of refusing the Zoladex and second lap so we can start trying straight away! Crazy huh?
Anyway it would be great to hear from any of you lovely ladies who might have had similar experiences.
