hi everyone, for the past ten years I have had so many appointments, scans, tests you name it. I have had so many a&e visits and always been told its either inb my head or its my ibs. I am thirty years old and after basically throwing a tantrum they did surgery and found I had endo. its everywhere, plus I have chocolate cysts and my left ovary is stuck to my bowels. my point is basically I have gyne soon and he has already said he wants to try the coil and try this and that and I'm so fed up. I cant be poked and prodded anymore. I want the surgery to remove it and sort everything out and hes reluctant. anyone had surgery? or is the alternative a better way to go. I cant cope anymore, ive been on all sorts of tablets and analgesics over the years. I'm so frustrated

Questions to ask your doctor:


You may think that if you become ill you just go the doctor and they give you a drug to take away the illness

What if your Endometriosis is caused by things that you eat, or don't eat ?

Here are some questions to ask your doctors about Endometriosis

* What causes it ?

* How will looking at it and scraping it help me get better ?

* Could my illness be caused by things that I eat, or don't eat ?

* What can I change about my diet and lifestyle to help my body repair itself ?

These are easy questions to ask but very difficult for doctors to answer, as they know very little about Nutrition.

It may be worth asking them to refer you to a Dietitian or a Nutritional Therapist, as they specialise in Nutrition.

If your doctor won't do this, try a search for BANT at bant.org.uk/bant/jsp/practi... and interview 10 local Nutritional Therapists who have had success advising about Endometriosis before choosing which one to work with
