So yesterday I had my 1st laparoscopy and they diagnosed me with stage 3 pelvic endometriosis. I have struggled with this because on one hand I'm relieved to have finally have a diagnosis, and that people will stop telling me to 'just man up' or thats it probably IBS, but I'm finding it harder coming to terms with the implications and what it means for me. I'm going to be 18 in a week and thankfully I've had a fairly quick diagnosis (I started noticing symptoms at age 14). I was wondering if anyone had any advice about going forwards from here? About getting my life back on track and everything? Thank you
