Hi everyone newbie here. It would take a long time to write the whole story of my long road to diagnosis so I'll give you the short version! For 20 years I have had abdominal pain after having my son 3 years ago things became so much worse! So 4 weeks ago I had my second lap ( first was clear!) and was diagnosed with endometriosis. I am a bit confused about a few things if you guys wouldn't mind shedding some light for me?!
I not only get pain in my pelvic area but throughout my entire abdomen plus my pains are not only around my period but all month, I might get about 2-3 days a month that I feel ok. Can this happen with endo?
I also get pain under my ribs and my back. Another strange thing is the pain seems to get so much worse about mid afternoon and gets progressively worse.
I still have not seen my consultant and not had the findings discussed with me which I am angry about! Won't see me till 20th oct! All I know is they found endo on ovaries, all over my uterus and on 'half a dozen other places' obviously if I knew what areas it might give me more insight but the hospital are refusing to give me any info. So my question is do you think it's possible that endo is causing my constant and widespread pain? I've read many here state they only get pain around their period, whereas my pains are maybe only slightly worse while menstruating. Many thanks x
