Hi everyone. After a 7 year wait, last year I was diagnosed with Endometriosis through a laparoscopy. The endometriosis affected both ovaries and both fallopian tubes. As well as the general endometriosis pains, I have always had really severe bowel symptoms - pain when going to the toilet, bleeding, pain during sex, frequent diarrhoea, long and painful cramping - so I was recently sent for an MRI to see if the endo had spread to my bowel. The MRI has shown no endometriosis on my bowel and i'm worried that something has been missed - the symptoms are constant and the specialist said MRI's aren't as conclusive as surgery. Has anyone been in this situation before where scans have not shown anything but the endometriosis has later been found?
