I had Endo after I had my 3 children and I'm now 39 years old. My children are now 18, 16, & 14years old. My periods were always heavy and very painful. 3 years ago I had to have a hystercretomy done but I kept my ovaries, the operation wasn't successful for me. I had an operation last year July on my bladder, that too wasn't successful. I then had another operation last year November via keyhole surgery by a private surgeon and it was a success, I'm still recovering but getting better day by day.
After having numerous operations on my stomach, bladder, bowels I have now been diagnosed with celiac disease.
My first op was an emergency in 2009 as I didn't know I had Endo. All I knew was I had the flu, I was vomitting non stop, couldn't pee, was constipated, bleeding in a lot of pain my skin turned yellow had hiccups. I was admitted in hospital where they did emergency bowel resection and since then have had problems eating solid foods and had non stop operations.
Please don't rush into anything, please do your research on Endo and treatments available to you. But to get diagnosed with Endo it's usually done via a keyhole.
