I’ve been having horrible pain for about a year now and my doctor referred me to an endo specialist who thinks I might have endo. He suggested laparoscopic surgery to diagnose and possibly treat and told me the date would be January/February. However, he wrote to me today to inform me it will be next Thursday and while I realise I shouldn’t be complaining as so many women wait years for this kind of diagnosis and surgery I don’t feel ready! I’ve got professional exams coming up and I’m worried it’s going to put my already new career on hold, but at the same time I want the pain to stop and the fatigue to end so I can get on with work and life properly!
I’m just not mentally prepared for how soon it’s going to be - I didn’t think I’d have to ready myself for the surgery and the impending risks as soon as I’m having to be!
While I don’t anticipate any sympathy, I really just needed to vent somewhere and hope someone will have some sage words of advice for me!
