Hi all, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 endometriosis in September following a laparoscopy and was told I have a lot of lesions in my bowel. One of my ovaries and Fallopian tube was actually fused into my bowel which the surgeon managed to free but, he wasn't able to do much more as was afraid he'd damage the bowel. He said any more surgery could result in needing to remove part of the bowel which he is hoping to avoid (certainly at this stage) as that could in turn result in me needing a colostomy bag (something I'd also like to avoid if possible)! However, since the operation I have been struggling going to the toilet as have been very constipated. I have started cutting out gluten, cows milk and soya as my consultant suggested reducing heavily processed food might ease the bowel pain. It has worked but I'm wondering if the diet has caused the constipation or if it's because the surgery irritated my bowel? Does anyone have any similar experiences where they can offer some advice?
