Hi All, new to all this so bear with me :0)
Admitted on Saturday to local hospital with severe abdominal pain - after an ultrasound, X-ray and bloods I've been told I have an endometrioma on my right ovary. Bit of a shock really, led to believe for the last 20 + years I had IBS - but the more I read about the symptoms of endometriosis the more I think I never had IBS in the first place. Also becoming increasingly painful to have my smears done over the years - could this be related?
Have to go back as an out-patient for further scan and gynae review soon but would be grateful for your experiences of what I can expect next?
