I've just had surgery 2 days ago for "laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis" because the gynaecologist was adament I had it from my symptoms, ultrasound and internal examination. When I came out I was told they found nothing it was "normal, normal, normal". I should be happy with this result as I know endometriosis is challenging and not what you would wish for but I still have to live with these symptoms with no way to relieve them. I get very painful periods, migraines before and after periods, nausea, lower back pain that radiates down my hips and thighs and painful sex which is always worse immediately after a period.
The surgery was performed by a normal hospital gynae team and wasn't an endometriosis specialist. What makes it worse is that it was in the public system so the inexperienced doctors do the operation and the consultant watches on, the consultant didn't even speak to me before or after the surgery, in fact I didn't even see him, but his name is on my operation report (his name on the list in the room that day).
Is it possible I do not have endometriosis and they are right, I am "normal" or is there a possibility it's been missed and I need a second opinion.
I will also add I am in massive amounts of pain following the surgery and they didn't even remove anything just looked inside, has anyone else experienced this?
