Hi ladies going to have a bit of a rant I'm afraid. I was admitted to Stepping Hill on Wednesday for bilateral oophorectomy removal of tubes and cervix with probable bowel resection. I had to endure bowel prep and starve myself all day Wednesday, I had a bed booked on high dependency and so had psyched myself up for this. Yesterday morning the theatre nurse came for me to walk me to theatre and I explained that I felt faint so she had to take on the bed, which she wasn't happy about! I asked if I could speak to the colorectal surgeon as I have been having the worst time with my bowels and she said he hadn't arrived. When the Gynaecologist came to me he said that I could either cancel the op and rearrange for a different date or just go ahead with the gynae work so I said go ahead. Last night the doctor told me they removed thick scarring from my ovaries stickiing to my bowel which had caused it to kink in many places and now wouldn't need a resection, I'm glad but I'm also really worried now that I will be back at square 1 with constipation etc. when I asked them what happens now I just got told if I have future problems it won't be from endometriosis. I'm worried because iv had to take that much medication for my bowel to work ot just won't want to. Has anyone else experienced this any advice would be great xx
