I'm 21 years old. 2 months ago I was rushed into hospital with severe abdominal pain, long story short - I had a 10cm cyst in my pelvis area growing off my left ovary. Had a laparotomy (open surgery) as key hole couldn't do the job (they tried it first). Had the cyst removed and my left ovary reconstructed. And was diagnosed with endometriosis !
2 months on and I've been put on the pill to help my endo. But I'm still in awful pain. Of course my body is probably still healing, but it's a dull, horrible pain which isn't constant, but very regular. Is this normal? The gynaecologist told me the endo can generally cause pain. Will taking the pill settle this pain down? I've been on the pill now for a week.
The gynaecologist also told me I have a severe case of endometriosis which could damage my other organs if not gotten under control!? Any info on this?
I would like to just have the lot removed and done with but doctors are reluctant to do this because of my age.
I'm so fed up now, still not back at work and I am going back to uni soon and can't be dealing with the pain
Any info or advice would be amazing.
