Sorry if this is long but I'm wondering if anyone has had endo come back after a lap..
I had a lap in Nov 2015 following a year of serious abdo pain, mostly left sided. Endo was removed, inc from Pouch of Douglas, adhesions were removed from bowel. Left ovary had cysts and was removed along with the fallopian tube and a vein that supplied it as that was damaged and causing pelvic congestion. My right fallopian tube was severed, something along the lines of it was a bit of a mess and it was accidentally cut when cleaning up (no probs as my family is complete) A previous lap found no endo (not a specialist) but did remove adhesions to my bowel.
I had several progesterone only pills following the op which caused issues with painful periods, acne, mood swings etc. I had a few months on Dianette to deal with the bad acne and my GP and I knew I had used it with no probs before to clear up my skin. I came off that when I burst an ovarian cyst on a flight last summer. I have now found a progesterone only pill which works for me. I get irregular periods but they are chronically painful.
Cut to now
I have begun to develop sporadic painful abdominal pain. This is cramping across my left side (bowel related), heavy feelings in my pelvis and a new pain in my lower right abdomen and right rib cage. Tracking back over the past few months I have had a number of spells of abdo pains but each time I put it down to poor diet choices, bugs picked up at work etc. My current issues seem to have exacerbated following an incredibly painful and bloody smear and a lot of walking over Easter (10 miles a day). I am starting to worry this is endo coming back as I seem to be settling in to the pattern of bowel spasms following from cramping pain elsewhere in the abdomen.
Has anyone else experience this?
I have a GP appointment booked but it takes almost 2 weeks to be seen when you need an out of work hours appointment!
