I am super nervous about posting this. I am after some advice.
Having suffered severe lower back ache, lower abdominal pain, nausea, not finishing meals, not eating, flooding when on and period type pains throughout the month i was referred for an internal and external ultrasound and swabs plus bloods.
All came back clear so my gp said it must be endo so i was referred to a gynaecologist.
I was rushed through for an appointment as i visited the doctors in tear numerous times with my last two afs and was prescribed cocodamol but i also have bad IBS which ive had since 13 so it just makes it all worse. It feels like shooting and stabbing pains all through your pelvis. I spend hours in the bath and walk around with water bottles on my back and stomach.
I was very disappointed with my appt with the gyni today. I walked out and burst in to tears. I had another internal examination and he felt my stomach and aaid yes i do have endo, as much as he can say without a lap. He wont send me for a lap as im only 25 and says it too risky- i just feel im not worth the money being spent. I understand others will have it much worse than me but also know that i cant continue like this. He says i have to try the pill first but i dont want to do this.
I was on the pill for years but cane off as i felt gormonal, moody and low with irregular bleeding and feel much more balanced emotionally since coming off it. Plus, i can only take progesterone only pills due to high levels of breast cancer.
To sum up i am umaure what to do. Do i push for a second opinion? Do my husband and i start trying now? A baby anytime soon isnt part of the plan, but i dont want to start trying in years to come and have problems id prefer to know sooner than later.
Sorry to ramble but i only know a cousin who had this no other friends or fanily so feel nobody can understand properly.
