So I had my first laparoscopy yesterday to diagnose endometriosis and I was told by my surgeon that they found nothing. No cysts, no fibroids, no endometriosis. I broke down in tears.
I have had severe debilitating period pains, pelvic pain, pain during sex, irregular bleeding, painful bowel movements and urination for the past 5 years since the age of 12. I am now 17, unable to even go to school because of the amount of pain I am in.
I thought that the laparoscopy would diagnose me and finally help me figure out what was wrong, but it has left me feeling frustrated, angry, upset and worried. I feel as if nobody believes my pain is real and that I’m fighting a losing battle.
I have had chocolate cysts in the past, which as far as I know, you cannot have without endometriosis. I have had transvaginal scans, ultrasounds, mri scans, which all showed no endometriosis.
Can anybody on here help me out? Have you ever been told after a laparoscopy that there was no endo but after another been told there was? Does anybody have any advice as to what I can do next?
Just a note that the surgeon who performed my lap was a general gynae and not a endometriosis specialist.
