Just joined here today as I was pleased to read posts from other people going through the same thing as me (not pleased for the pain etc but pleased I could talk to people who actually can relate to how I'm feeling.)
Just to give a brief overview:
I noticed a few changes with my body over a couple of years and a mixture of pain and having no joy in conceiving baby number 2 after 12 months resulted in me taking a trip to my GP.
To cut a long story short all of my symptoms pointed to endometriosis and had a laparoscopy done exactly one week ago.
The laparoscopy showed no visible endo but they couldn't have a proper look because my organs are so stuck together and they didn't want to risk doing anything there and then. They do still believe it is endo that has stuck everything together though or there is a slim chance it could be scar tissue from my c-section almost 5 years ago.
One ovary is stuck to my abdominal wall and the other has embedded itself deep under my bowel so I was told. Also the dye test showed that both fallopian tubes are closed.
I was told all of this having just come round from anaestethic and to be honest its all a bit of a blur and I was told I need to come back in three months to discuss further as I will need another operation to try to separate my organs.
However, now a week has passed and I have so many questions that I want to ask and three months just seems like a lifetime. I'm so anxious
Just wanted to talk with people who have been in similar positions to this really.
I'm only 27 and can't stomach the thought that this is it - no more children, constant pain and having no control over my emotions whatsoever.
I know im blessed to have the one child and believe me I know that but I guess we all have our own life plans and I have always known I wanted two. I'm trying to keep positive as they haven't told me this is the case but being human I seem to only be able to think about worst case scenario.
Sorry for such a long first post guys! Like I say this is all new to me and I have no clue about any of it and just wanted to hear from others who have had similar experiences to try and alleviate some of this anxiety (plus I feel better for taking some frustration out on my keyboard lol)
All comments appreciated - even those telling me to stop going on :$ lol
