Hi there, after having a laparoscopy in December which they lasered away endo in my right side (the pain had always been to my left) I was told I also had a fibroid growing in an unusual place which meant they could not remove it. I also was told I have pelvic congestion syndrome. All 3 of these things are what has been causing my heavy bleeding and pain. After further discussion with my consultant I decided to try the coil as this can help settle endo but won't do much for the fibroid & PCS (apparently having induced menopause is the only thing to shrink the fibroid) anyway I insisted the consultant fit the coil as last time I had this I was in a lot of pain and persevered for 2 years. I went last Thursday expecting to be in & out however after excruciating pain and a heavy bleed the consultant could not do it. She has said I will need to be put to sleep and she will get me booked in asap. I am still feeling sore after Thursday and just wondering if all this is really worth it! I hear stories of people who swear by the coil and others who have struggled like me. I have to say my consultant has been brilliant and I trust her 100% just wondered if anyone else has had this problem getting the coil fitted. Thanks
