Before I ask my questions I should give you a little bit of background.
When I was 18 I began having severe pain with my periods every month, my periods became extremely heavy, they could last over 2 months at a time and intercourse became unbearable because of the pain I was in. I went to my local A&E in August 2009 where they performed an emergency laparoscopy. When the surgeon came to see me following this surgery I was told everything came back completely normal apart from having adhesions and a very small cyst which they drained. Adhesions to me seemed very strange because I'd never had surgery before so I didn't really understand what could cause them.
The pain continued monthly for over a year and in October 2010 I had a scheduled laparoscopy under a different gynaecologist who performed my first, but once again nothing was found and everything looked normal except another small cyst which was drained and adhesions which I was told at this time could of been caused by my first surgery but I made them aware that there was already some present before my first batch of surgery.
Since then my pain has been on and off until 2013 when I had the coil fitted which was the worst pain I'd ever experienced constantly until it was removed 6months later.
I was then put on prostap in September last year because the pain became constant and although I have been bought off the prostap and have been in severe pain ever since, I have my 3rd laparoscopy scheduled next Thursday.
I'm so nervous because although I don't particularly want a diagnosis of endometriosis I also don't want doctors to think I am making the pain up.
I've also been referred to a gastroenterologist because when I'm having my period (sorry if tmi) I'm also bleeding from my bum at the same time too, so they want me checked for endo inside my bowel by having a colonoscopy.
I just wanted to ask if anyone has been in a similar situation or if anyone is going through anything along these lines.
Thanks for reading xx
