Well where to start in my late teens: early twenties I was diagnosed with ibs after suffering many stomach issues, since then the pain did not subside and seemed to be taking over my social life and just became very isolated in myself. I kept being persistent until the doctors finally offered me a scan which revealed I had a chocolate cyst on my left ovary. Now at 26 I finally got told they would do an laparoscopy which I had yesterday. After the surgeon revealed the left cyst was due to rupture very soon so he removed this and did actually find some endometriosis which he managed to remove also. This disease can go unnoticed and make you feel like a hypochondriac which I've been called a lot in the past. All I can say is you know your body and trust your own instincts. Be persistent and push for anything
You can to get your diagnosis. Although I didn't want this outcome I can now start to understand that my pain wasn't in my head and that hopefully can be managed and monitored. Has anyone else recently had a lap done? Would love to hear about your recovery.
Stay positive ✌🏼❤️
