After having endo removed just under two years ago, I'm now experiencing the delights of round two... This didn't happen last time, but I am losing weight fairly rapidly (a stone and a half in a couple of months) and then another four pounds in the past fortnight. I've always been slim so now I am underweight (not dangerously or anything, yet) but I just wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced weight loss with endo? I get bad nausea and stomach problems every two weeks with ovulation and menstruation but I eat normally and (easily!) get 2000 calories a day. I exercise but not excessively ( 2 or 3 30 min jogs a week...). And even when I am poorly I do still try and make myself eat because I know I'm losing weight. Plus I'm vegan, following the endo diet and into my organic veggies so I eat really healthily anyway... But I am still losing weight!? Is my body maybe trying to cope with the endo and using up energy that way!? I definitely don't have any medical problems that cause me to be slim as believe me it has always been a huge effort to be slim for me my whole life! I'm on no medication (other than painkillers, obviously! And I can't take any hormonal meds for endo) and I have no history of eating disorders so can't be fooling myself into thinking I eat more than I do!
Has anyone else experienced unexplained weight loss with endo before?
Also, if you are underweight can you still have surgery?
I am due lap number two in a few months....
Thanks very much, any advice much appreciated!
