Can I ask if your surgery was in a BSGE centre? Have they said why your symptoms haven't improved?


No it was just the local hospital they haven't really said anything other than were not sure. I kinds put up with pain I'm use to it but its my periods that worry me mist and they don't seem to care z


If I were you I would ask your GP to refer you to a specialist BSGE endo centre for a second opinion as it seems that general gynae can't help you further at this stage. Only endo specialist centres are allowed to treat bowel endo anyway and their surgeons have advanced training and dedicated multi disciplinary teams.


I started with general gynae too but swapped over due to advice on here and recently had my first op with bowel investigation to follow in new year.
