That's a pretty good description of me at the moment. I was diagnosed with endometriosis 25 years ago, and it was treated very successfully with hormones until my periods stopped when I was 50. Little did I know that it won't leave you alone even when you're no longer fertile. Now I have terrible arthritis, my hair is falling out, and every 28 days I get period pains and awful itching and skin problems on my hands, forearms, chest and face (i.e. all the places where men have hair). Most of the time I look sunburned - quite a trick in England in January!
I've asked for an ultrasound, but I'm worried that they'll refuse to operate because I'm overweight, and it's so difficult to move that I can't shake it. I've been offered bariatric surgery, and I'm confused as to why they're willing to do invasive surgery on my gut but not on my endo. Any suggestions?
Thanks, and keep up the good fight.
