What to do for the best?

Hi everyone. It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here.

I had a laparoscopy at the end of March for severe stomach pains and other symptoms relating to me possibly having endometriosis. Nothing gynological was found and they don't know what it is.

Recently I have been having a pins and needles sensation in my feet and my stomach is really bloated every day. I changed what I ate for breakfasts when I had my surgery because I used to just have a cereal bar. It helped for a while but now I feel like everything is slowly creeping back and I have no idea why. If I don't have endometriosis I should feel happy but I don't because I can't help but wonder what is wrong or what never went away when I thought it had.

Were you seen at a BSGE clinic? Regular gynecologists tend to miss endometriosis if it is not located on the uterus or ovaries. You may have it in the Pouch of Douglas which is difficult to spot. If you still think something is wrong, ask your GP for a referral to a BSGE clinic.


No I was seen at a hospital rather than privately because of all the consultation fees. A gynocologist undertook my surgery, however, I was unaware that it can be missed if not carried out by a higher professional body.


BSGE clinics are not private clinics, you should be able to get a referral from your GP.
