Hi, do you have a laparoscopy booked or an appointment with gyne doctor? Are you pains close to your periods or all month?

I have just been diagnosed with endo, been excised from behind uterus and ligament and also adenomyosis,

I'm 3 weeks post lap,

My stomach was blooted before the op, but has got worse and worse,

Good luck in your appointment next Friday

Hi Lindle

Reading your post helped I get memory loss and chronic fatigue all the time thought I was going mad yes thanks I'll take it with me thanks



Hi Emma - look at this paper about bloating as a symptom of endo. I should take a copy and have it on you just in case they say it's not a symptom:
