Hi there, I am new here so hello to everyone!
I have recently seen a consultant and am now awaiting a diagnostic surgery in April, after months of thinking im going around the bend and a very annoying bunch of GPS.
I have been suffering with many symptoms, painful intercourse (at times); a deep pain in my tummy rather than in my vagina but not every time, very painful periods with black in colour, tiredness, but most of all severe lower back pain with some in my hip bones, bum and legs; I have been seeing a physio for my back as I was originally told this was mechanical back pain although this has been of no benefit to me.
I have previously had various tests and scans which have shown nothing.
When I saw the consultant, they did a vaginal examination which was very uncomfortable for me, she asked me if this was the same pain as intercourse but it was not, I wonder what it is meant to feel like with Endometriosis?
I am really happy to be having the surgery but also really scared and paranoid that it will be clear and then I will be back to square one?
Has anyone had a similar experience or can enlighten me?
