Hi, I'm sorry but I'm going to ask so many questions as I don't have any answers and I'm still not sure whether I have endometriosis!
I've had abdo pain for quite a while at varying levels (3-4yrs+) and finally following many anal bleeds I was getting quite worried and ended up going to go and had a clolonoscopy to remove a polyp of 2cm. I thought this may end the problem but I was still getting the pain and bloods so I've seen gynae and started pill- feanolla which I thought was combined pill - does anyone know if this is the right? I told gynae dr I get migraines with aura and weakness down one side and my dad having had a stroke in 50's I should have progresterone only pill.
I went home to try this rather than more invasive treatment as I didn't want to waste their time and and have an unnessecessary procedure. I ended up bleeding for about 6 weeks and with worse abdo symptoms and migraines with auras where I felt I was loosing my vision. I finally thought I couldn't go on with it and I contacted them to get a sorry letter and try this progesterone only pill! I lost my confidence with them by this point and decided not to take it and wait for my follow up. In the mean time I've had a written warning from my NHS employer regarding my sickness (3 single days in one yr) which is making me feel more stressed and if my abdo pain is psychological this is not helping! Is this all in my mind!!! I'm seeing the same team on Tuesday and need some advice as where to go from here? Thank you for listening to my waffle... Emx
