Hi ladies, I hope you're all having a pain free evening! Unfortunately I'm not, sitting in my favourite place - in bed with a hot water bottle.
I've got suspected endo and I'm suffering from constant cramps every day, shooting pains in my ovaries and down my legs, along with pressure in my bum and trapped gas under my ribs. Opening my bowels is hell and I rely on paracetamol and wind ease tablets. I love food but I dread eating because the pain is unbearable.
My question is, do you experience these 'IBS' symptoms too? (I've been fobbed off with that diagnosis for 7 years. They make my life so boring and depressing, I've been off work for nearly 2 months and have been told I'll be getting statutory sick pay which is only £88 a week.
Finally, I've got my first gynae appointment on Wednesday and would like to know what to expect? Not sure if I should take my fiancé with me or if it'll be awkward with the examinations etc. I'm going to get a list of questions together before I go, but I'm adamant about having a lap and not any chemical injections or anything. The pill has done nothing for me.
Thanks for reading xx
