Hi everyone, I'm 26 years old and have been diagnosed with endometriosis since I was 17. I've had 3 laparoscopys so far, each showing endo, and tubes stuck to ovaries.
Last night I was taken to hospital by ambulance as I was crippled with pain after working all day. I couldn't walk!! I was vomiting with the pain. I was given gas and air in the ambulance and when I arrived in hospital. This helped. But as soon as I stopped taking it I was in tears.
The doctor came to examine me, he done the usual feel of the tummy and asked questions. Said he had to wait on my bloods. So he returned 40mins later, while I was still rolling around the bed in pain. He said, "your bloods are all fine, unfortunately this is just a flare up if your endometriosis!" He looked at me as if I shouldn't have been there!! Like it was nothing to worry about.... I felt so let down and hurt. I was in agony, and no one was helping me. So after pushing to get seen by a gyne team, turned out I had a small cyst!! I wasn't exaggerating!!
This whole experience has left me fuming!! I'm sick of being treated like a fool and made feel 'it's not that bad!!' I'm finding it really hard to cope with. My whole life is ruled by this horrible condition and no one seems to understand how hard it is!!
Does anyone else get this response? I feel like I'm going mad.
