C-Section 6 months ago and endo worse than ever!

Hello ladies.... This is my first post on here. I'm 37 years old and have had endo for as long as I can remember but like so many women have only been diagnosed in the last 7 years after putting up with horrendous periods, infertility and finally being hospitalised after an endometrioma cyst on my ovary burst (ouch!!) I had a lap 2 years ago where endo was removed from my uterus. Both falopian tubes were twisted and my ovaries were attached to the uterus. My right ovary is badly damaged.

After years of TTC and various fertility treatments I have been blessed with 2 gorgeous children. My little boy was born 6 months ago via emergency section... Since my periods started again I have suffered terribly. Not only are they horrendous like never before im am suffering terrible pain in between my periods (ovary area and lower back) it hurts to sit down, I get shooting pains up my vagina and when I go to the toilet. Has anyone else experienced endo being a LOT worse after a section and is there anything I need to do? I don't feel like doctors care in the slightest :-( the last GP I went to see told me that's just the way it is after childbirth (seriously! How would HE know???) any help would be greatly received xx
