Hi, I am 21 and after 2 years of pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, mood swings and weight gain, I have been diagnosed with endometriosis following a laparoscopy last week. When I woke up after surgery, I felt relieved to hear the diagnosis so that finally, I could maybe do something to alleviate the horrid symptoms. I was told that I did not require a follow up appointment but that if I experienced anymore symptoms to go back to my GP. The surgeon spoke to me literally 5 minutes after i woke up and I can't remember much of what she said and would really like to speak to someone about where I should go from here. My partner and I have been together for 3 years and are both students at the moment but really want to have kids in a few years however the surgeon told me that my left tube is blocked and therefore I am at high risk of ectopic pregnancy, is there anything that can be done to unblock the tube? I am still in pain from my surgery but everyday I can feel more and more of the all too familiar endo ache coming back, is this normal even though they removed most of it? I am so frightened of not being able to have children and feel that I was offered very little support or guidance following my diagnosis. My daddy passed away 4 weeks ago and I am an only child and the thought of not being able to give my mum grandchildren is just heartbreaking. Any advice/info would be so greatly appreciated as I really don't know what to do next
