Endometriosis on bowel

Hi just wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with endometriosis on there bowel an what was the symptoms? For the last couple of months I've been suffering with going the toilet when on my period and my stomach swells like in pregnant, I also can't touch my left side an when the pain is that bad it hurts to walk.

I had endo attached to my bowel. Had pain and was always constipated, very bad cramps, stabbing pains and a lot of swelling. After my 2 laps I had issues. The scar tissue was causing me to go to loo for no2 a lot (almost like water) and then constipated. It got so bad I had to have a camera to see what was going on. Doctor said that the scar tissue was causing my intestines to almost look like a tied balloon. When I had my scan I’m sure they said my intestines were all over the place. They just prescribed me laxido.

I have bowel endo and my bowel is tethered to my pelvis. I'm constantly constipated though on periods I find it easier to go for a bm, sometimes there is blood but my colonoscopy came back clear. My left side is so painful, almost feels like something is getting blown up like a balloon which then bounces when I walk which causes pain. I got prescribed Laxio, Fybogel and Lactulose.

Thanks I've always suffered with my bowels but they got worst over the years. My doc ordered every test possible an I found out I had a rectoseal which the hospital prescribed linoctide I also have senna, but my endo has been causing a lot of pain going to the toilet it started with my bowels but now it's even hurting me to go for a wee. On my last lap they removed a fibroid as for my left side it feels like something is twisting getting worried now as I want kids

The best way to keep your bowels moving is with supplementing with magnesium every day. Also vitamin c in bigger dosages helps. When you feel constipated take Ascorbic acid up to 2 -4 grams a day and it will do the trick. In the same time you will boost your immunity. Only watch out for good quality supplements. Not like supermarket vitamin c which is made in China from GMO corns. Watch out label that it is NON GMO. amazon.co.uk/NutriBiotic-As...

That is a good brand. That big bottle lasts for a year, it is massive. I can also recommend to by a book by Lara Briden - Period repair manual. A lot of natural solutions for endometriosis there. Health to you all. :) I am much better these days with natural treatment.

I too have bowel endo and get pain in my left side. My bowel is attached to my uterus and ovaries. It feels like constant stitch or sometimes a pulling pain. I get bloating, trapped wind and constipation and symptoms are a lot worse during my period. I use senna and colpermin (they contain peppermint oil) for the wind / bloating and also drink peppermint tea. But any other advice would be helpful.

Have you told doctor about black poo and bleeding. This should be investigated. I couldn’t face sex either when I had bowel issues. Wishing you all the best
