Hi, I'm new to this and have never posted before,
It all start with a very server sharp right hand sign pain and I was take. Into hospital with suspected apendix, only to find it wasn't and was sent home with antibiotics, with my own reasearch into the pain I was experiencing I found that I possibly had endometriosis, so I went to my pg with my concern,
I had nearly every symptom that I could see on the internet but before reading into this I wasn't aware that the symptoms and pain weren't just normal symptoms and period pains.
I recently seen a gp who specializes in gynecology, and she suggested I try the merina coil first, but they would do this under general anesthesia as I've had no children,
I just wondered if anyone has refused hormone treatment and been offered anything else, my main concern being I have another condition in my legs called lipodema which is a fat distribution disorder, very painful and swollen legs, which is affected and could become worse with hormone change.. and this is something I don't want to risk ..
she has book me in for a pelvic scan and internal scan to look at my ovaries and a review appointment in a month so hopefully get some answers then
