Help! Links with bowel problems


I've had 5 laparoscopies to treat endometriosis, adhesions and clots. But I've also been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and had problems with my bowels. I'm convinced they are linked but both consultants said they didn't know about the other. Has anyone had a consultant that has looked at both bowels and reproductive system.

I haven't seen a consultant that has looked at both but have two different consultants like you as I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis many years before endo was found. My ulcerative colitis consultant now thinks that I don't have it as a sigmoioscopy a few years back didn';t show anything - and that the endo is the reason for the colitis type effects or something else. He hopes to see me in a few weeks to discuss it further. Endo can be linked to the bowels x
