Just wondering whether anybody could offer any advice.
I have just had my first laparoscopy which came back negative, apparently everything looked normal. I was given a laparoscopy after suffering from the following:
-Constant vaginal bleeding that stops for only a few days each month and then starts again, very heavy where I have to get up in the night to change tampons by setting my alarm
-general pelvic pain around my ovaries, low in my abdomen and around my back
-pain and heavy bleeding on intercourse, when it's actually possible!
-pain on urination and constant urge which gradually turned into incontinence although I am 27 and never had a baby. Medication has helped as before I would be up until the small hours rushing to the loo every 5 minutes to avoid pain and leaking
I had assumed it was all linked to my severe PCOS until the urine leaking started. Got to the point where I couldn't go to work because I couldn't sleep and then was so afraid of wetting myself and in severe pain.
Obviously I am pleased that it is not endo and feel lucky in this regard. But I am also struggling emotionally as my symptoms are humiliating and painful and i am no closer to diagnosis. My surgeon spoke to me afterwards when I was off my face on morphine so I have no real idea what's next. He rang me a little later. He mentioned something about having my bowels checked and something about there maybe being something inside the wall of bladder or uterus or something but I didn't understand him. What is more, arrived home to find letter already cancelling my post op in 8 weeks. He fitted a mirena coil which I was only expecting him to do if he found endo and took biopsies which I found out from reading my discharge Form. Not that I mind but it wasn't discussed with me and I don't know why they were taken.
Shouldn't I have some kind of checkup after a mirena coil? I wasn't told anything about that but I'm sure you are meant to have a 3 week checkup to make sure all is well.
Sorry for the long message but I really have no idea what is going on.
