Morning girls, I wonder if anyone can help. Yesterday must have been the best but worse day of my life. I've woke up from a lap after a year on from my last and I've been told I have stage 4 endo and it's literally everywhere apart from my tubes. That managed to burn some away but said I will need open surgery as it's all so deep they couldn't burn it away. It's even moved up to my stomach. Has anyone else experienced this. I'm so shocked as before I paid someone privately and they said they found a spot on each ovary and that shouldnt affect my life. I can't believe how extent it is this time round.
Can anyone help me with what open surgery is? She also mentioned about injecting myself to help stop the ovaries from working? Why would they want them to stop?
Unfortunately I wasn't able to go home as the pain was so severe, heart rate is high sitting around 179 when it should be around 60 - 80. Also I'm unable to wee properly, this isn't unusual for me as I go into retention alot. I'm on 27 tablets a day and waiting to see the pain specialist as the tablets have made me gain over 3 stone in 8 to 12 weeks and my hair has begain to fall out. Can anyone recommend strong pain relief I can ask for other than tramadol and Co - dramol? My biggest concern is the bleeding. When I go to the toilet there is a lot if blood, not sure if it's leaking from the bladder or vagina. Sorry I have so many questions I just want to be prepared to go home comfortably.
I'm only 24, it's my first year of teaching and being married, thank you all in advanced x x x
