I'm 26 and I was diagnosed as having endometriosis and adhesions when I was about 18. Had a laparoscopy in 2010 and it helped for a little while, but things have become so bad again that I'm fainting during my period every month without fail. Saw a new gynae Consultant a few weeks ago and he recommended having a Mirena Coil fitted, which I did, but it had to be removed the following day due to perforation of my womb (OUCH!) and now he has said the only real option for me is an endometrial ablation. I'm well aware that it means no kids for me, but honestly, I'm OK with that and married my husband on the understanding that neither of us wanted children.
If anyone else has had an endometrial ablation I was hoping to ask a few questions, such as:
- After the op, was there much pain?
- How long following the op did you have off work?
- Any side-effects I should be aware of?
- Has it helped?
