Hey, i am new to the site and was looking for some advice.
I was diagnosed with endo 10 years ago when i was 19 and went on the depo injection, which was amazing for me and no periods! Fast forward 10 years and i have come off all contraception, as i would like to start a family in the near future!
My pain and nausea has got progressively worse and after being referred to Gyn again, i was told i had a "chocolate cyst" on my right ovary which was 4cm. Im booked in to have this removed, dye testing and ablation of endometriosis. I have just over 3 weeks until my surgery, but im struggling to walk with the pain, especially mid cycle. I have had to phone into work on a few occassions and am not breaching my sickness policy. My question is... should i be experiencing this severe pain with a cyst? My GP offered me a line until i get my surgery, but i declined, thinking i could carry on, i now know i can't, but i feel terribly guilty as if people will think im "at it."
Any one had any experiences of this?
