I got diagnosed with endo in August last year, after being rushed into hospital in the middle of the night because a 12cm blood filled cyst had grown on womb & left ovary and was on the verge of bursting. I had open surgery and was in recovery (off work) for 2 months. I was put on the pill where you take them for 3 weeks and bleed for a week. Which I thought defeated the point of being on the pill because the bleeding is the problem?
Anyway, a year on and my pain has got progressively worse and I've now been bleeding for an entire month. I can't even describe how terrible the pain is, I've had to call in sick from work on numerous occasions and it really does effect my every day life. I'm only 21 and I'm going into my 2nd year of uni next month and I'm worried this is going to effect me and my education, as it's a;ready effected my work life.
I've been booked in again for key hole on the 28th of this month so my doctor can have a look and see what is causing my pain and the bleeding. My pain tends to be on the left hand side of my stomach and its either a dull, deep aching pain or a raw stabbing pain, but it can also sometimes be across my whole stomach.
I know the risks of organs fusing together etc and I have such a terrible feeling that this is the case. My doctor warned me of the risks of operating again and how it could result in damage to my organs.
Its all just a lot to take and any advice, or own experiences would help me I'm sure!
