Okay so I'm seriously confused. I was sure my symptoms were so closely matched to endorse that this is what I just be suffering with
- I have chronic pelvic pain, pain during sex, lower back pain, constant fatigue, cramps when I'm on my period, before I went on the pill (tmi) I used to have really heavy, long periods and very irregular ones too. I often feel quite bloated but have no other symptoms of IBS. Sometimes I feel like I need to pee but I can't feel like a strain on my bladder sometimes when I pee. Every symptom is always worse when I'm due on my period and then gets a bit better a few days after it.
I had my first lap yesterday by a regular gynae and he couldn't find any ends and took pictures of my ovaries, Fallopian tubes, liver, uterus and they looked clear and perfect according to my mum (I didn't get to seem them as I was very groggy). He suggested IBS (which is don't think it is as my bowels function fine and it doesn't relieve any pain even after following an IBS diet). He suggested Interstitial Cystitis. He write in my discharge summary, that my uterus is normal and ante erred, mobile ovaries, Fallopian tubes, liver, and POD, appendix visualised and appears normal. However nothing mentioned about vowels or bladder being checked?
I guess I'm just a bit concerned he's missed something especially since the lady who went into theatre before me told me her first laparoscopy showed endo, yet he couldn't find any endo on her and suggested IBS?
Everyone I spoke to said I should go see a specialist and get a second opinion but I don't want to have another laparoscopy for nothing again?
Please help, I'm so fed up of this all, I just want answers.
Thank you in advance, Amy
