hi, im 19 and about 2 weeks I had laparoscopic surgery to remove extensive endometriosis (described as stage 4). All this has come as quite a shock, from the time between my diagnostic laparascopy and the surgery to excise it the endo had dramatically spread and my bowel was severely stuck. The surgery had seemed to go well and I was happy to finally feel like my life was going to get back on track. A week later however I ended up in hospital and having an emergency operation which has resulted in a temporary colostomy bag. My bowel had been left too thin to cope with food and there was a hole in it also. I don't know what happened but the hospital will not let any of the endo team even get in touch with me. I'm about to start my first year of uni again after missing too much last time due to health reasons and I'm worried the same is going to happen again. However I'm staying positive, things can only get better now right? I don't know how many other young girls there are in this situation or just anyone else but I'm here to talk to if there is.
