I have recently been diagnosed with endometriosis. My appendix ruptured resulting in an emergency operation to remove my appendix. During the operation the general surgeon noticed adhesions to other areas of my insides. Because t was an emergency operation due to my appendix that’s all he removed. After the operation I was told it was an ovarian cyst that had ruptured causing my appendix to then rupture. He also said things don’t look quite right and that he was referring me to a gynaecologist. Yesterday I saw my gynaecologist who looked at my previous scans and notes from the operation. He then examined me and straight away he said yes I can feel the thickness inside. I was lucky enough to have my child at aged 20, 7 years ago now. I have never since fallen pregnant again but I just went along with if it’s meant to be it will be. I’ve also had painful heavy periods, pain during sex. Since having my daughter I’ve suffered with constipation results in all the bowel tests. All these side affects I’ve seen my doctor with had numerous gynaecology referrals and not once did they mention endometriosis.
I’m shocked that it was never mentioned before giving I’m on 27 and the amount of trouble I’ve had over the last 7 years. Everything was just blamed on child birth. I’m very thankful I have my little girl.
So my reason to coming on here was see if anyone who has endometriosis who suffers badly with painful sex when having the laparoscopy and what ever they do, did your painful sex go. This is my only main issue really sex just isn’t pleasant anymore and this is my main problem. The fertility part also came as a shock but I’m just in two minds if to have the operation it let nature take it tole. He couldn’t answer my question about painless sex after the op so have any of you ladies after having the operation gone back to painless enjoyable sex.
I look forward to hearing from you ☺️ x
