Hey ladies just feel like I need to have a bit of a rant...
I was diagnosed with severe and extensive endo in august following a lap, with the endo being around my left ovary, on my bladder, bowel and rectum, my uterine tubes, across my vaginal bone and also a 5cm mass of it at the top of my vagina....(despite the surgeon coming to me an hour before surgery telling me he didnt think he would find anything!!!!)... I havent had hardly any information about it since, what to expect, what happens next or anything. I have had constant pain down the left side of my pelvis before and after my lap, and this was explained to my consultant. I saw him again in October for a post op appointment and he told me he thought the endo he managed to burn away during my lap wouldve stopped the pain, but now it seems worse than ever. It is affecting my sleep, my work and my daily life, I am currently sat with a heat pad on my back. I have also had quite a few episodes of bleeding after sex for a number of days afterwards. (sex has always been painful because of the endo). Following the consultation in october the dr said Id need further surgery to burn it all away but I am still waiting for a date 3 months later. And Ive heard that burning it away doesnt always help?
I just wondered if anyone else has had a similar diagnosis and what their story is and the things they have found. I am 26 in a few days and do not have children.... but would really like to be a mum!
Any help, advice or another rant would be very very helpful Us ladies have got to stick together... no one else seems to understand!
