So after 10 years of nagging doctors I finally had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to determine whether I had endo.
Turns out with all my nagging and persistence I was right.
Unfortunately, apart from a chocolate cyst being removed the doctor could not remove the endo as my bowel, bladder and womb etc are all stuck together! This was such a shock as I knew I had symptoms but wasn't prepared for it being the worst stage.
Next step - I have a follow up in 12 weeks time. Consultant has suggested that I have a more involved operation with bladder/bowel specialists there etc as they need to ensure the organs aren't damaged.
I really feel like screaming at my doctors saying "I TOLD YOU SO!"
it's not good news but at least now you know. Also, now you know you were right to listen to your body x
