I have been suffering with endo since I was 18 years old. I am now 24, 2 operations later and it's deffo back. I have been having horrendous back pain since this time last year and have just put it down to the endo been back and maybe my IBS. I recently saw a display regarding cervical cancer and saw that a symptom was lower back pain. I mentioned this to my doctor and I made an appointment for a examination and maybe a smear.
I have had to wait around 4-5 weeks for this appointment due to holidays and things. Within this time I have begun to feel quite unwell some days. My bowel habits have been horrendous, the lower part of my tummy is constantly swollen, every time I eat I feel like I have eaten a massive meal (even if it's only a salad) I have actually not been very hungry which isn't like me... I've had lots of things and I haven just generally not felt myself.
I went to the appointment on Wednesday and the doctor began the examination. It was so painful and she couldn't continue. She asked me how old I was and then said I needed a referring for a colposcopy as I had a large amount of cells on my cervix that shouldn't be there.
I am now so concerned and scared this is going to be something really bad and I am struggling to get up and feel ok, or not worry myself.
I don't know what to do with my little self everyone says don't worry but it isn't effecting them. It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't feeling so rubbish every day either.
