Hey, I recently got diagnosed with endometriosis (like literally yesterday). I originally went to A&E with right abdominal pain, which a CT scan later showed was a large cyst, I had my laparoscopy yesterday and was diagnosed with this condition. Truthfully, I had never heard of it and the thought of having it is kinda scary because i'm only 22 years old.
I have been told I need to start treatment on Saturday (in 3 days) and I'm going to be having an injection called Prostap which will supposedly make my body go into some sort of fake menopause.
I don't know how my endometriosis is then going to end up getting monitored, so it would be pretty cool if someone could give me some in sight in to how exactly your progress to certain treatments is monitored? I had a few minor difficulties with my laparoscopy, which has resulted in me having to use a catheter for 4 days. So I am really hoping they don't need to do another laparoscopy in 6 months time to see how my womb and al that looks!
As you can imagine this is a really emotional time for me, and I'm really over whelmed, so any sort of insight into this condition would be fantastic, and any sort of information on how I am going to be monitored would be really great too!
