Hi I am 30 years old and have been having pain for a year since my csection for my breech baby , my gp was very dismissive. Finally got fed up last month and demanded referral to arrowe park women's hospital. To which gp comment was they'll just put a coil in, we can do that. I ignored her and said still wanted a specialist to decide that. Two weeks later saw consultant who booked laporoscopy 10 days later! I had surgery about 8 hours ago. The consultant was shocked to find a grapefruit size endometrioma and stage 3/4 disease throughout out. They have removed as much as possible but there is still some deep bowel involvement. I chose to have them place a mirena whilst in theatre. I just wanted to post to tell people not to be fobbed off and to insist on referral. Also surgery is not as scary as you think. I am back home now, I won't lie it is quite painful but only as bad as the periods I was having every month. It's possible I may need more surgery but I dread to think how I'll I would have been if the cyst had burst. I'm really glad I went for it as the surgeon left the decision up to me. Anyway I just wanted to share x
