Hey I'm looking for some advice if anyone can offer any or just some support as I've losing the will to carry on.
I underwent my 1st laparoscopy yesterday after the drs suspected endometriosis. No endo found and no follow up plan given. They only looked at the outside of my uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. I am a newly qualified nurse and have lost my first ever nursing post because of time off work from pain.
My symptoms are as follows mainly during ovulation and more intense in the lead up to, and during my period:
Back pain, mainly lower (leading quite regularly to sciatica)
Pelvic pain (like my bones are rubbing together)
Abdominal pain that feels like burning
Pain in my right lung feels like my lungs won't expand properly (Dr said my chest and lungs sound fine)
Pain in my shins
Bubbling feeling in my stomach
Excruciating pain after any internal examination
Pain after sex (not always and not as bad as after internal exams)
Pain and tenderness to touch around the right side of my rib cage
I feel like I'm going crazy and have never felt this depressed in my life. I saw a doctor today who grinned when I told him I felt like my right lung wasn't working properly and said he feels that a physical problem won't be found and its likely a psychological issue. These symptoms have slowly increased since having the implanon removed just over a year ago.
Has anyone been in a similar position to me? I'm sick of crying, am jobless and considering calling off my wedding as I have no income and dread the thought of having to go through my wedding in agony. Thanks in advance for any advice given
