I had a laparotomy for a chocolate cyst with adhesions just over 3years ago. I feel I have been somewhat paranoid ever since as I knew nothing of it until I experienced difficulties urinating so went to the doctors with query Urine infection only to discover following an examination that I had 'a large mass' in my abdomen. I get continued abdo pain sometimes more severe than others, but I don't feel I am taken very seriously when I see the GP. They say they have no record of Endo on my medical record but the consultant told me I had endo and poly cystic ovaries. I have no treatment or meds I am interested to read about the mirena coil option so I may go back to discuss with GP but may be hard if they don't believe I have Endo according to their records.
