I've never written a post on here before, I've always been a 'reader'.
I have suffered with endometriosis for about 15 years. I am waiting for a date for my hysterectomy, this is something I did not envisage at 34yrs old. They're making the cut horizontally and taking everything and also having a bowel surgeon present as the disease is around that area too.
They said that there is a significant chance of being left with a colostomy bag.
I am absolutely terrified of this operation and the recovery process afterwards and really need others to talk to who understand.
I'm trying to remain positive but am increasingly becoming withdrawn from my family as I feel they 'don't quite understand'.
Thank you for reading.
