Hello all, bit of a long story I suppose.
I've just been diagnosed today with endo. I have believed I've had endo for years now, I've been to the doctors with awful pain for many years, in my leg, which feels like a flushing pain where I want to rip out my muscle, a stabbing pain down there, which feels like I'm being impaled and I scream out, then a pain in my side, I also find it almost impossible to go to the toilet when I'm on too.
Anyway, I have been diagnosed through a bit of fluke luck. I went to my GP because I was sick of my bowel troubles and it's always just IBS. She did bloods and tests for coeliac, and because I mentioned bloating, she ticked CA125 levels.
Anyway, my levels were elevated (I went when I was on, I didn't know I was being tested for this), so I had to be put into ultrasound as precaution and the results were an ovarian cyst caused by endometriosis.
It's quite bitter sweet as I've known for a years and the doctors have said everyone gets pain when they are on, but at least it's diagnosed now, and quite easily I think, compared to having to have a laparoscopy.
I just wondered what happens next? I've been referred to a gynaecologist who I see in September, but I don't really know what to do now.
What happens next?
