Sorry I am new to this. I haven't got a formal diagnosis of endometriosis, but am having my laparoscopy in Feb. I'm in my last year of nursing, and am really worried I won't bounce back after the op and am going to struggle. I've had heavy periods for the last 8 years, and the pain is on and off (and sometimes is unbearable - I ended up in hospital in September last year). My relationship with my partner is struggling due to the bleeding and pain (after sex) and I am feeling really down. I'm struggling with my bladder, and if I don't go to the toilet straight away, I'm in pain for hours.
My gynaecologist is trying to persuade me not to have the op, and making me feel like it's all in my head. In the last year I've seen my gynaecologist twice and she makes me feel like I'm wasting her time. Does anyone have any advice please.
