Wondering if anyone else out there has experience of this. I had a laparoscopy on Thursday 1st March because I'd been suffering from pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, bloating etc. Classic endometriosis symptoms, plus I had tenderness upon my pelvic exam. I also suffered from recurrent UTI's. My mother had extensive endometriosis and actually had to have a hysterectomy at age 30 because she had a cyst the size of a melon on her ovary from endo. Because of all this, my consultant said I needed a laparoscopy to see if I had it based on this family history/ all my pain.
Anyway, I had the lap, and the consultant said he didn't find any endo but my bowel was fused to my pelvic wall. He sounded a bit exasperated as this is a clear sign of endo but I didn't actually have any. He said he wasn't sure what caused this to happen- it was extensively fused to the pelvic wall.
I've never had an STI, appendicitis or previous surgery to cause these adhesions. He checked my appendix, it was healthy.
