I'm new to this so wanted some help/advice. I've been suffering from sever pelvic pain for 18 months - 2 years on and off. Been back and forth to the drs and after a coil check, swobs & ultrasound everything was 'ok'. I'm still suffering with pain which has got worse over the last 8 months and is more frequent now, sharp shooting, pressure around my front & bottom that hurts when I go to the toilet, bleeding/spotting out of nowhere, always suffered with pain during intercourse & extreemly heavy periods. Sometimes the pain is so bad i feel like im in labour and have to sit on the toilet to relieve it. Ive got 2 young children so know what labout is like.
I decided to go private so last Wednesday I went for a consultation. After various questions and external & extremely tender internal the gyno suspects I have endo. I'm waiting for my surgery date. Meanwhile I'm sat at home worrying about It, the cost of it and if I've done the right thing. To wait on the NHS would be months and it's really getting me down to the point where daily chores, caring for my kids and walking are becoming difficult. I'm in pain 3-4 days a week then some days nothing but a numb pulsing/throbbing pain.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I have been reading posts that I've found helpful and wanted to put my story out there for feedback/thoughts.
Many thanks ladies.
