hello everyone, I am new on here.
id like to tell you all about my story, all comments and opinions would be much appreciated
for 6 months or longer I have been struggling with this awful illness and I am still not officially diagnosed yet. about 6 months ago I started having periods every 2/3 times a month I was put on the pill and that calmed it down and went back to normal then, I started getting horrendous pain in my stomach and back, I was back and forth to the doctors. had scans, swabs, blood tests the lot and they couldn't find what was wrong.
One night I couldn't even get out of bed or walk the pain was that bad I was taken into hospital via ambulance on boxing day last year, I was kept in for 4 nights 5 days and I hated it! I was on drips. oral morphine, codine, paracetamol, antisickness. it was horrible I had more scans I had about 2/3 different diagnosis of what could be wrong but no one could seem to put there finger on the problem. I was back and forth to the hospital spending time in hospital from 1 night -4 nights just to be given morphine then sent home.
I was at my doctors at least once a week getting different tablets, more appointments then my doctor did an examination on me the pain was horrendous and this is when she said she needed to refer me to the hospital to see a gynaecologist, so my appointment come I went to see my consultant, they examined me and she had a look of concern on her face my heart melted, she gave me a list of treatments as she suspected I had endometriosis.
Option one- to go on the pill- I am already on the pill so I said no
Option 2- have the coil I said I have been suffering for ages now and I want it over with so no
Option 3- an injection which shuts down my ovaries and sends me into menopause, I instantly declined that as soon as she said it. I'm 20 and even though there is some possibility I cant have kids I still want to keep my options open.
Then finally the operation I told her id just have that to get it over and done with.
So I have been waiting since February 2017 for this operation after doctors appointments still and ringing the hospital to chase it up. Finally I have my operation date on Wednesday 14th June.
I will fill you all in what happens next thank you for reading if you'd like to message me feel free.
