Should I be worried?

Hi Ladies,

I had a laparoscopy 2 weeks ago and have been diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis. They couldn't do much and only ended up draining a large cyst on my right ovary. I haven't been in any pain until last night. I have a constant dull pain and I get waves of intense pelvic pain. Almost like a burning. I'm not due a period and it not like that pain. Has any one else experienced this or have any idea what it could be?

  • Hi , I can't really help with pain, but I'm assuming you had your lap with a general gynaecologist? If they've diagnosed stage 4 endo you need a referral to a BSGE specialist, who will then be able to excise the endo. Have a look at Lindle's post on treatment pathways etc. Good luck.

  • Thanks Jean. It was a BSGE specialist. I got referred from my gynae. I think I'm just a bit worried I may have an infection. I'll wait it out over the weekend to see if it goes away.

  • Hi Hun , I'm glad you're at a centre. Was this you're diagnostic lap ? And do you know if further surgery is planned?

  • That's like the pain I get but I have not been diagnosed yet. Waiting for laparoscopy. The pain is just awful isn't it!

    What did they say they could do for the endo?

  • Do they remove your endo during surgery? Mine was 10 weeks ago and I am in more agony now than the first week after the op so I am wondering if its the healing process that is more painful xxx
