I had surgery and was diagnosed with Endometriosis in October, but have four weeks the pain came back and has been getting steadily worse. I was primarily diagnosed with stage 1, but having been rushed to hospital yesterday because I couldn't walk, the doctors think it's spread to my bladder and said it may have grown deeper, hence the crippling pain, and no longer be stage 1. Obviously, it's all theories and assumptions without having a look inside, but it's just left me feeling exhausted and upset.
I'm 22, trying to do a part-time masters and keep a job despite having to take sick-days when the pain is unbearable, and yet now I'm being told that if the pain is this severe, all over my stomach, back and down my legs, I shouldn't probably have surgery again to check my tubes are okay.
Tubes! I didn't even want to start trying for kids until I'm 28, and now I feel a timer ticking in the back of my mind; an invisible pressure on my shoulders silently telling me I need to start trying to kids ASAP before it is too late. It's ridiculous.
So, I'm just wondering if anyone out there as waited more than three years after diagnosis with stage 1 or 2, and still been able to have kids despite the doctors saying you only have a limited time yet to have them?
Thanks and sorry for the long rant!
