I had my first lap almost 3 weeks ago, and on the sheet they gave me from the hospital when I was discharged it said "Normal pelvic organs, no endometriosis identified." It also said no follow up needed, but the nurse said "Yes you'll need a follow up next month." I feel absolutely back to square one again and so lost. Since last year I've been poked and prodded for different tests, been put through hell by my own body, and tried to prove to my work and everyone around me that something is wrong. I wouldn't wish this awful disease on anyone, but in a way I need validation, mostly to put my mind at ease and so I can look for forms of treatment that actually work.
I've spoken to a few ladies who have said they've had one surgeon not find anything, and then another surgeon say they're completely riddled with endo.
I tried so hard to push to see an endo specialist but it wasn't offered to me. I'm just so worried they've missed it and I'll have to go through the awful recovery of laps over and over until they find something.
I experience horrendous rectal pain during my period which is why it was suggested I may have endo in the Pouch of Douglas, could they have missed it here?
