I'm 21 and was diagnosed with endometriosis during key hole surgery 4 months ago. I had my first appointment with my consultant since the surgery today and found out that everything is a little more serious than they first expected. The main thing that they keep telling me is that i'm very young to have endo but also to have it to this severity. The organs it is attached to is my kidney, bowel, liver and they seemed quite worried that they also found it was as high as my diaphragm, and that this could therefore create a hole in my lung if it carries on. I will be having key hoe surgery again in the next 6 months to remove the endo but there are a lot more complications this time! I asked my consultant the chances of me being able to have a child and he said he would recommend me having a coil during my next op and then try for a baby a year prior. He seems to think after that my chances are very slim :(. I just need some help on what has happened to others, as i'm only young and would really love to have my own child one day!
