Hi, I'm new to this group and the reason I joined is I'm searching for a surgeon to perform a laparoscopy...and advice from you lovely ladies...THE EXPERTS!!
Long story short: diagnosed in 2009 stage 3 endometriosis on both ovaries and chocolate cysts on both ovaries adhesions lots of scar tissue prob from my c sec in 1998.. Couldn't reach all of it...was told have a baby it will make u better!
2012 had baby boy he's gorgeous by c sec (I know I'm one of the lucky ones it didn't affect ,my fertility) horrendous painful pregnancy awful labour emergency c sec again, having a baby did not cure me... But he is a beautiful gift xx
2013 mirena coil fitted to try and ease my pain... Made me worse and very angry not a nice person!! Had polyp biopsy
2014 diagnosed with candida apparently this is causing my pain not the endo?? Go on strict diet etc lose lots of weight feel worse than ever!!!! Need coil out could be causing the candida?
March 2015 see Dr Thacker at Nuffield Brentwood Essex nhs, most brief consultation I've ever had I felt uneasy with him should have listened to my gut!
He tells me I have no endometriosis... Removed coil and did smear test... So what's my pain then I ask? He shrugs shoulders walks out!!! 😡😡😡😡 I shout after him to come back... He said I don't know maybe it's the dilated veins (never heard of this?)
You had those... Go see your gp for HRT. Walks out again he made me feel like a piece of 💩 excuse my French!!
I've tried fighting this with diet and supplements and cranial therapy etc... But can't take the pain anymore and the fatigue and feel like a rubbish mum and wife (to be).
Can ANYONE please recommend a decent surgeon that is competent in the Essex area that I can ask to be referred to please? I'm getting married in December after a 12 year engagement coz I just never feel well enough to go ahead with it! I've just turned 40 and don't wanna get married too old!!
