Hello lovely ladies. I'm just out the hospital since sun with severe pain and feeling like I was going to explode down below - not sure if anyone else has experienced this? Anyway, as this has been ongoing for a long time now, I've been provisionally diagnosed with endo. I'm seeing my gyno on Monday to arrange a lap as the doc suspect that my ovary is maybe stuck to my pelvic wall.
I had an ultra sound performed (in another department, not gyne) and they couldn't see anything suspect. When she touched my left ovary though, I was almost through the roof - it really was agony. The lady doing the scan said that this again pointed to endo.
Having spoken to another doc in gyne, she said the a lap would only let them see what was going on and that it really wasn't going to change anything and that I need to "work through the pain" and not let it affect my life. I don't know how I don't let it affect me when I feel the world is going to fall out from me - sorry to be graphic.
She also said that a lap normally does more harm than good. This has left me feeling hopeless as I've been waiting to be referred for ages. Going to see what my gyne says on monday, but just wondered about everyone elses' experiences. Feeling totally hopeless at the moment and not sure how I'm going to live the rest of my life with this pain and this horrible pressure feeling xxx
