Hello everyone this last 12 months have been a whirlwind for me, briefly in Jan 2014 I noticed my period was very late 72days! many negative pregnancy tests later I went to my Dr. He suggested I go for an ultrasound where they found lots of cysts in both ovaries, was referred to gynae and diagnosed with PCOS. However by then (Mar) I was starting to get period like achey pains when going to the toilet and feeling very uncomfortable (pains around ovaries esp when sat) in the week before my menstrual cycle. They suggested endo and I waited for a lap. 17weeks later (Nov) had the lap and the surgeon found stage 3 on pelvic walls and under ovaries. My surgeon claimed he'd removed it all and I'd be fine from now on with a 20% chance of recurrence in 5 years (I was not convinced by his confidence after reading posts on here!)
Well 8 weeks post Lap and I feel like the whole thing was pointless. I have been having occasional achey pains but worse than that the bladder symptoms are awful. I'm back to feeling like my bladder is never properly empty, especially in the evenings. I've been spotting blood for 14 days straight and have period style aches after urinating. Can't sleep through the night without needing the loo and I am exhausted! Heading back to my GP but i am doubtful he's going to have a solution.
I was hoping someone might be able to help me out, is this normal? Does it get better? or is this potentially as good as it gets? For women with ovarian cysts have you found the pill beneficial? (I'm not on anything atm) I've been very fortunate that I've never had the excruciating pain that other women suffer from.
Any replies would be greatly appreciated
Best Wishes to you all
