I have just been diagnosed with having endometriosis and wanted some advise...
I'm 19 and after years of discomfort they found a 'large mass' in my 'pelvic area' which they found was a very large cyst on my left ovary, they wanted to get in out straight away so booked me in for a laporotomy on Monday, when they got in they found very bad endrometriosis attached to all my organs and all in my pelvis, after my surgeon trying to scrape as much as he could out due to bleeding so much there wasn't anymore he could do. So now being diagnosed with endo I have looked up what it is and how it may affect my life and many of the symptoms I already have... I would just like any advise or tips anyone may have, anything useful I can use just to make it a little easier (easier said than done i know) I really want to know how people have found their fertility issues as my doctor says he's 80% sure that I will have to have IVF. Also I have been looking at a specialised diet that looks VERY hard but with promising results, it consists of no diary products, no sugar, no red meat, no wheat or barley, and little alcohol and a high diet in fibre and fresh organic fruit and veg... Its a big change and drastic but if its a life changer then surely its worth it? Let me know your thoughts
