Hi everyone, hope you guys alright and not too much in pain like I'm now. This my first post. I'm 40 years old and I have one daughter nearly 8 years old.
I have endometriosis and adenomyosis diagnosed 7 years ago after always been suffering period pain for 20 years. They are stuck in my womb. I had fibroids too before I had my daughter but apparantely it has gone.
I had my first laparoscopy 2010 ( this is when they have found endometriosis)
Embolisation (laser surgery) 2012
Myomectomy 2014 and
Two weeks and a bit ago I had my second laparoscopy and also Mirena insertion that I paid myself privately. I have fed up with my old gynae at NHS. Anyway, I have been to see my consultant yesterday and he said he's done as much as he could. He took lots of endo and adhesions. But he also found severe endo on my rectum 🙈. So he could not do anything about it as it will be big op and need specialist bowel surgeon to fix it. I feel so unlucky with this chronic disease!!! Now I understand why all the time I got bloated, nausea, winds, constipation, pains down my legs, shooting sharp pains from my bum and sometimes diarrhoea, you name it everything that related to the bum area (sorry tmi).
The mirena is put in, so the idea is I will have no period! But lastnight my period started and OMG it's more painful then before!! I could not believe it. I feel so drained as had codeine, ibuprofen ect but it didn't help!!
I just want to know if any one of you have the same thing as me and how are you going to do about it.
Should I wait until Mirena Coil works or should I have a look of possible bowel operation 🤦🏻♀️😫??
Sorry if it is long story.
