Hi all, you might have seen me around, I've posted on a few things. Anyway, I was diagnosed with endo in October 2017 after about six months of treatment (the pill was a nightmare and my gyn didn't want to do a lap), so I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I had my lap done privately and my gyn only found one patch of endo on my uterosacral ligament and a peritoneal cyst. As I was seen privately my doctor wasn't an endo specialist and she only ablated the endo that she found, and excised the cyst. I know that excision of endo is the best treatment but obviously didn't get a chance to ask her to do it when I was under!
I currently have the coil fitted which sort of helps (I know it's helping with the hormones but it hasn't stopped my periods... they're still 7 days long though the pain isn't as bad) but I'm super paranoid it's going to come back. I hated going through surgery (I get really bad medical anxiety, mostly due to an inability to control everything) and am not in a hurry to go back again! I'd really love to see a BSGE specialist but they're relatively far away from me and I think they're NHS which means a long waiting list if my symptoms start to show again.
I guess I'm looking for a bit of advice and reassurance. Has anyone been in a similar situation and what did you do?
