Hi all - I am just recovering from my second laproscopy. I feel very down and alone in what has followed following the surgery. This was meant to give me my life back and hope of starting a family but I feel like I have gone back years. Probably easier if I give a bit of background. I had my first laproscopy in 2014 after being privately diagnosed with Endo. I had to fund my own treatment after constantly being fobbed off by NHS doctors until a wonderfull private consultant confirmed what I believed all those years and within one scan she had seen I was riddled with "chocolate spots". A laproscopy was booked in within a week and they found the Endo had also fused my bowel to my stomach wall explaining the IBS symptoms. Unfortunately 6 months within the op the pain gradually started to increase again down the left side. The last 12 months the pain has become unmanageable and I was put on the NHS waiting list for more surgery.
After waiting 9 months I had the surgery on Monday. The consultant explained to me when I came round that there wasn't any Endo there and if I asked for a laproscopy again he wud show me the door. I felt like bursting into tears. I had pinned so much hope on the removal of the Endo so my pain would go, waking up in the night wud be a thing of the past, the IBS problems would sustain and the left side back ache would ease a little but now I feel that I don't even know what I'm dealing with. the consultant even questioned who ever told me I had Endo in the first place! Only one of the top consultants in the country that's who!
I know my body and I know something in in there just I don't know why it didn't show on the Lapo. Constant back ache, the stabbing pain feels like a screw driver being twisted in my side, IBS problems and I didn't appreciate until today but I get so many nosebleeds - another symptom.
I am going back to my GP on Friday to ask what they suggest if I suddenly don't have Endo, what else can it be?!
I am also seeing the private consultant next week as I feel it's only her who I can trust to be thorough enough.
Really am heartbroken that all this waiting and hope of being fixed has come to nothing!
Do any of you ladies have symptoms of a negative laproscopy?
