Hi, I was diagnosed with endometriosis a few years ago and although I'd been managing it fairly well until recently, my GP and co sultanas at the hospital have never really seemed to have the time to sit down and talk to me about it. All they do is tell me to either manage the pain with painkillers or say I should go on the mirena coil, which for various reasons I don't want to do. Recently the pain has been getting worse and I've just come back from an ultrasound which confirmed I have another cyst on my ovary (probably nothing too sinister) and increased adhesions. I've come away feeling really low in a way that I haven't for a long time. I don't know what this means, or how bad it is yet. And I keep reading things about the increased risk of cancer with this condition which terrifies me. Nobody I know suffers from this and I feel very alone. I know this sounds very wimpy and I'm sorry, but my partner gets stressed when I get upset about it.
