Hi ladies, I have been suspected to have endometriosis since the age of 16, im now 19 and had a diagnostic lap in July, I was under for 90 minutes as he removed a lot from my ovaries and bladder. I was in excruciating pain for weeks after my lap when passing urine so went to my GP and got painkillers, I had my post lap appointment with the gynaecologist last week and he basically told me that he has removed my endo and it won't come back, he asked how I've been since the surgery and I've been in far worse pain since he surgery and not had a pain free day. The gynaecologist then went on to discharge me even after knowing I was in a lot of pain and told me to just go to my GP because he's done his bit. He also was persistent that my pain was period pain and not endo pain, but I'm on the pill constantly so therefore only have 4 periods a year and I'm not on my period and I know that it's endo pain. It's really affecting me, I'm always in pain, me and my boyfriend haven't had sex since because of my pain and I just feel like the hospital and gynaecology department haven't supported me or tried to help me with my pain since my op. GP has prescribed codine and co drydamol, I've changed my diet and I eat a lot healthier, but I don't know what else I can do.. Any help? Thank you in advance x
