Endometriosis UK

Follow Ups??

Hi Ladies, I am new to the site. I had treatment 4 years ago via lap to remove endo, what was suppose to be a just "a look around" ended up being treatment to separate my bowel and womb due to the endo. My question is I haven't had any follow ups (apart from surgical follow up) is this normal or should I contact my gp. I am feeling my symptoms again lower back pain, stabbing pains again :(

Hi.

I think it sounds like your endometriosis is returning I would make a appointment with your doctor to get you sent back to your specialist x

Yes I would hun, it's better for them to sort it sooner rather than later I think.

I think it just seems to be standard that when pain returns to get your Gp to refer you back to the specialist some people have had years others sat months😕.

I hope you aren't in too much pain and you get seen quickly xx

Luckily not too much pain at the moment just that uncomfortable feeling :(

That's good in a way I know it isn't nice being in any pain but hopefully might not be as bad.

What did they do in your last laparoscopy? X

2012 was when I had my last one which was also my first one so in a way still quite new to this

I have only just been diagnosed but it was suspected quite a while before I got my diagnosis so I had done a lot of reading about it.

Theres so much take in i think it's all overwhelming.x

It wasn't suspected for me, I went to the doctor with period pains and problems going to the toilet. He asked a few questions, next thing I know I was at a hospital appointment being told I was have a lap to have a "look around". Have you had your lap done yet?

Oh poor you that must have come as a shock. Yes I had mine 6 weeks ago. I got diagnosed with Endometriosis and Adenomyosis unfortunately it hasn't improved my pain as I think that is the Adenomyosis that is causing the pain and the only cure for that is a hysterectomy xx

When they did my lap they found that my bowel was stuck to my womb so they had to treat it and put gauze in place. Since the op I lost feeling in the top of my left leg from the anesthetic apparently caused by a trapped nerve and my scarring has been hurting recently as well. Not sure if that is cause by my weight gain though :(xx
