So I last posted in January about how I feel I have endo and have had a horrific time being in and out of hospital every month.
Since then my pain has increased! I have two weeks of every month where I am hospitilaised for morphine, when Tramadol doesn't work and it's wearing me and my family thin.
I eventually got to see a surgeon a few weeks ago and he agreed to perform a diagnostic lap on the 28th of June. However he told me all of these horror stories of how he could puncture my bowel and I would need a colposcopy bag for the rest of my life and worst case if he puts a hole in my bowel and they don't notice I could die!
I'm just looking for some advice because I'm really apprehensive of having the surgery if it is that high risk. He also recommended monthly injections which completely stop the menstrual cycle which I could only have for 6 months however I start uni in September and thought I would have a better idea of how to manage my pain for then after surgery.
I'm also terrified that they don't find anything during the lap! What do I do then?
Any advice would be much appreciated
