Hi, I hope someone can offer me some help and advice. I had an IVF cycle last September as we have male factor infertility problems (all seemed totally fine with me at the time….) It failed, and I then found out I had a cyst on one of my ovaries… I had a lap to remove it (it was a dermoid cyst) and they also found severe endo on my bowel and the area behind my womb and into the pouch of douglas was 'obliterated' and I have a large nodule on my bowel!! However, the surgeon said the lap went well and I can now have another round of IVF. So I thought, problem solved, and since then I have had no period pain at all which is great. A few days ago I got my period and suddenly had a wave of nausea and threw up. Then I noticed blood in my stool, and then had rectal bleeding for my entire period. I am now so confused. I think the surgeon couldn't remove the nodule as it was meant to be surgery to remove a cyst, not bowel surgery and I think he was afraid of perforating the bowel, but I don't know for sure as I am STILL waiting for my follow up appt!! I am meant to be starting IVF in 2 weeks but am so worried about having the IVF whilst I still have this problem. The surgeon didn't mention anything about needing further surgery or anything when i came round from the operation but I think I might need a colonoscopy or something??? I can't even call the surgeon as he's away! My IVF clinic seem a bit concerned I think they are going to have to postpone my cycle. I feel so down, things are just getting worse and worse. x
