I've been reading through all of your posts for what seems like years now. I hear myself in each and every one of you! Since the birth of my last child 19 months ago I have been dealing with extreme fatigue, lower abdominal/pelvic pain that's worse on the ride side, bloating, frequent urination, heavy periods with large clots and pain during sex to the point that I am afraid to now have sex at all. I keep getting the run around between my obgyn and pcp. So far I've had 2 ultra sounds, numerous paps and a ct and everything has come back normal. My doctors look at me like I have 10 heads. I am not imaging all of these symptoms!!!! And to boot, they seem worse month to month. I've requested a laprascopy last month and my Dr sent me for the 2nd ultrasound. Tomorrow I meet with him again to get the results, however my pcp already stated it was normal.
After months of research I realize that the s/s of endometriosis and adenoyosis are very similar. I'm wondering if I should request an MRI first to see if it's adenoyosis or should I just request the lap procedure and have the MRI after. At this point I have lost all faith in my drs. I feel like they will tell me it's nothing even if they find something just to prove that they're right and I'm crazy.
What are your thoughts? Do the lap first or the MRI first?
