Hello, I'm new to this page and looking for some advice. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 17 after being in NAND out of hospital with extreme stomach pains and fainting. The removed my appendix and realised that it was fine, so did a laparoscopy and found that I had endometriosis and removed the build up. I have been in and out of hospital with pain since and just given painkillers every time. Finally, last year I was taken into hospital and they wanted to do another laparoscopy, however the consultants argued as they said I was too underweight (I'm just a petite person who had always struggled with being underweight) and they decided not to do it because of the risks.
I've been on yasmine pill for just over a year which has seemed to reduce the pain. However I don't get periods apart from some occasional spotting. Until three weeks ago I had the most heavy and painful bleed of my life and was stuck in bed for over a week. My doctors dismissed it and gave my painkillers and methanamic acid. However I am still getting severe pains in my left ovary constantly and it is made worse by walking or trying to exercise (I was told exercise and walking would help).
I don't know what to do, I'm only 23 and worry about infertility and if I'm going to be in pain for the rest of my life. I just feel like I don't get taken seriously.
