I am new to this group and wish I knew this existed years ago.
I was first diagnosed with this 8 years ago and have had numerous laps and laser treatment to get rid of the endometriosis however each time it has come back harder an stronger.
I am now getting to the point I feel like im hitting my head against a bick wall! just before my periods start I am one big bloated emotional mess and not forgetting the tiredness I feel. The pain as well is not just in my stomach (overaies) but also in my lower back and hips. My emotions are effected the worst one minute smiley the next I want to kill some one shortly followed by crying an emotional roller-coaster.
Then comes the period in which time all I want to do is sleep and EAT!! Working is hard and gets effected as I often have to pull sickys or pretend one of the children's child care have let me down as telling the boss I am to tired today just wont cut in.
I've literally come to the end of line an often feel alone as most people dont understand endometriosis and what it causes.
I am grateful enough to have had my kids early as have I of left it till later on in life chances are I would of never of had any. So my genealogist is now telling me there's nothing more he can do part from give me a hysterectomy ?! is there any other ops or solutions as im scared if I have to have the hysterectomy that the hurt you have to have afterwards will destroy me as me an hormones do not mix!! makes me emotionally mad and fat.
Any advice would be appreciate and so happy i found this forum as felt so alone before and only partially believed when explaining the symptoms to people unaware of this.
