Hi everyone -
I'm new here and getting ready for my first lap in October to definitively diagnose endo and remove any that they find. It's already confirmed that I have a 6cm cyst around my left ovary and smaller ones on both ovaries.
Oddly, I have also been having trouble urinating over the past few months and this symptom is getting worse and worse. I saw a urologist who scanned my bladder and told me I am retaining urine.
Has anyone been told that their endo is causing urine retention and bladder issues? Did it get better/worse after your lap?
It's strange - I've had vague symptoms of painful periods, hesitation before urinating, and bowel issues for months/years in some cases - yet everything seems to be coming to a head this year. Not sure if others experienced a slow build up of symptoms like I am.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
