Hi again all, I recently posted about managing the pain until my laporoscopy which is in 10 weeks time, but I went to the docs to get some more painkillers on Friday afternoon but saw a different GP and she examined me and said my pain seems like internal infection/scar tissue which is causing adhesions and why I can't walk normally very well at the moment (literally feels like a tugging on my right side, so painful it makes me feel sick) and NOT endometreosis - although i thought the adhesions are caused by endo?! Could it just be that non specialists don't know much about the condition? I am going back tomorrow to get something stronger as I just can't get on with anything so hopefully will get a different drug to codeine or at least a higher dosage. Another interesting point is that I mentioned I think I have hemorrhoids (no GP has ever examined me for them, I just said it bleeds after I go/blood on the toilet paper and they prescribed me suppostries for piles, this was 2012) and she also did an examination for them, she said a small one is present but possibly not reason for as much blood I have in the toilet after a movement. Has anybody had any experience with this? She said it could be if my bowel is connected to ovary or womb because of the adhesions. I'm starting to get really confused with all the different info, I know I should just be patient and wait for my laporoscopy (they wrote again to the hospital to push it forward but basically told me not to count on it) so they can see what's wrong, but the pain is starting to be really worrying, and I never usually complain about being ill!! If anyone can offer some advice it'd be great. X
