2 and a half weeks ago I went to have (what they thought was) a dermoid cyst removed. The laparoscopy operation discovered an 8cm chocolate cyst - they drained it, cauterised some parts inside. I have endometriosis - nearly stage 4. It is stuck to my bowel, pelvis and back of uterus. They didn't remove my ovary or any adhesions due to it being to risky - as I want to have my first child. I'm 38 so they have referred me to have IVF treatment if need be.
I am so down, shocked and having such horrible pains. Got my first period since the operation - third day and in loads a pain. So annoying. I'm so angry and frustrated that this has happened to me.
I only found the love of my life a year ago and we both want children and have waited till we found the 'one' to do so. This condition has been affecting me for longer than I knew - now I know why I've had so much to deal with physically - exhaustion, terrible reoccurring thrush, emotions every where, tummy pains before and after a period etc. the worst symptom being for me - constant feeling to wee and pain to go.
I know all of you are going through this too - so glad I found this website. It helps
Hoping to feel better soon xx
