Hi ladies, so I’ve just got home from the hospital and my 2nd gyne appointment. Anyone who has read my previous posts may remember I now have a mirena which has stopped the ridiculously heavy bleeding, but I’m still suffering with severe cyclical pain and bowel/bladder issues. My gynaecologist has said he will do a laparoscopy to rule out endo before passing me to gastrointestinal team to see if they think it’s ibs. I have had ibs medication and that has not eliminated the problem. He thinks it could be ‘pms’ symptoms, and probably not endo as 1) I don’t have pain during sex (I have experienced it on occasion but it’s not usual for me, but I always get cramping after sex-or the examination he’s just given me! like I’m about to start my period) and 2) on examination my uterus was mobile-not stuck to anything. He put a lot of emphasis on those two things pointing to no endo.
Don’t get me wrong I’m pleased I’m going have the lap and get some answers, and I hope I don’t have this awful disease causing you guys so much suffering-but now I kinda feel like maybe I’m wasting time, then i remember the pain. This is such a hard time guys xxx
