Hello everyone, hope you are having a good day pain-wise.
Ok background: so I have stage 3-4 extensive endo. Had a lap last July and I don't recall my consultant saying that I had endo on my bowel. I am now being referred to a specialist laparoscopic endo surgeon as my consultant has said she isn't trained enough to treat the severity of the disease and I need excision. Haven't heard from this new consultant yet.
For the last few months I have been getting increasing immobilising pains about 30 minutes before I need to have a bowel movement. The pain is such that I can't breath or move and it comes and goes in waves and feels like someone is poking me with a red hot poker up the bum and into my insides (sorry TMI I know, just trying to describe it accurately!)
Once it's actually 'time to go' it's ok as once the wave of pain has gone, I can have a bowel movement which itself isn't too painful, and the pain just disappears. I don't have any blood in to stools either. Sometimes when I am on really heavy I will get these poker pains without needing the loo and they come and go as they please.
Do you think this could be a sign of endo or something else? Either way I will of course discuss it with my new consultant but I was just wondering if anyone else experienced something like this?
