I had a laparoscopy on Weds and was diagnosed with extensive endo, chocolate cyst and large fibroids. They separated my bladder and uterus out but were unable to do any more at that time.
I've been in pain and trying to be heard by doctors for 15 years who repeatedly told me it was IBS, depression, anxiety or all in my head. This seems like a ridiculously familiar story.
I'm really struggling to come to terms with it. I've had to give up so many things over the years because of the pain and fatigue. I've felt so much guilt and blamed myself and have had many periods of depression.
I wondered if you had any ideas for how to cope with diagnosis? I was told I'd get given an appointment with my gynaecologist in 6 weeks but this feels like a long time to wait to speak to someone.
