After reading everyone's posts on this website its sounds like we are all having the same problems with Endo, I'd been suffering with pain and sickness for many years before I finally got sent to get a ultrasound where they discovered that i had a 11cm tumor on my ovary (later it was found to be a Endometrioma) . Unfortunately I could not save my ovary and had to have it removed . After a biopsy it was discovered that i had borderline ovarian cancer. Luckily the left ovary is still ok and I will just require monitoring to ensure that any further endometriosis growths don't become cancerous. I writing this post for couple of reasons one mainly is to make people aware of the importance of getting a ultrasound (I didnt even know i had Endo it when i went for the scan) ; for years and i mean since i was 13 I was palmed off as the extreme pain as being "normal" and have spent most of my life taking large amounts of pain relief. It makes me angry when I think that if just one of the multitude of doctors i saw over the years about it had sent me for a ultrasound I could have saved my ovary. I am extremely lucky that the cancer was caught early and touch wood will not return anywhere else. I would hate to think of anyone else out their suffering in silence . So ladies insist on a ultrasound! Just as a footnote im 33yo fit healthy , don't smoke and rarely drink so don't think this couldn't happen to you.
Right well now that's out of the way just wondering if anyone else has tried the whole gluten and dairy free diet recommended for our condition ?? as in gone the whole 9 yards and had much sucess with weight loss? I eat a very healthy diet and work out 3 times per week but still don't seem to be able to shift much weight . If anyone knows any good diet plans or books especially tailored for endo sufferers id love to hear about them. Thanks in advance
