Long time no speak! The last I posted I was talking about my failed laparoscopy I think. Just to reiterate - I'm not diagnosed as of yet, but I have suspected endo.
So I basically just wanted to rant and see what you guys think of what my new gynae consultant said to me. He said that my fatigue has nothing to do with endometriosis because it's not a symptom of it. Plus he said that I don't sound like textbook endometriosis because I'm in chronic pain every single day rather than just around my period, so therefore I apparently can't have endo. I'm going in for another laparoscopy at the end of May because I practically begged him, but he's making me feel crazy.
Are any of you who are diagnosed in constant pain every day of the month, not just around your period? I haven't actually had a period since January after I was put on a load of meds to stop constant bleeding. But the pain is very much there every day of the month.
Another reason why I'm feeling crazy is because recently the pain has been a lot more bearable and my bowel/bladder related symptoms have been a lot more under control. Compared to the pain I was in say a month ago, I feel a lot better recently (still have symptoms and chronic pain etc. but not as severe). Could this be because of all the medication I'm on? I'm on cerelle (mini pill), citalopram (for my depression), omeprazole, naproxen and cocodamol, taking paracetamol too. Could I actually still be in a lot of pain, but the pain killers are actually doing their job and masking it? I've never found pain killers to be that effective but since I've been on cocodamol and naproxen instead of just mefenamic acid, the pain has been so much more bearable!
I guess I'm scared that it was all in my head and that I'm fine now. Part of me knows though that the pain I was and still kind of am feeling was very real and has had me bed bound for weeks.
Just looking for some advice!
