Hi all I'm new this the forum and endometriosis. I was diagnosed about a month ago via examination and MRI. Apparently I have quite severe endo and need to have surgery that could involve my bowel so am really stressing out. I have large endomitrionas on both ovaries and have been unable to conceive for over 18 months. I'm really lucky that i don't really get symptoms other than severe pain during my periods that last a day or 2 and not every period.
I've been reading all the posts I can on here and am really worried about the operation. Firstly alot of people seem to be in more pain/bowel issues after the op and seeing as I don't really have many now that worries me. Secondly I'm worried as they said I could need a colostomy bag. We discussed leaving the bowel endo and judy dealing with all the other bits at this stage... but is that sensible or will it spread more. A friend who had endo said by having surgery made hers grow back quicker and to leave it be ? Any thoughts and comments would be welcome. Should also mention I can't take any kind of hormone. Thanks for reading x
