Hey everyone, I'm having my first laparoscopy in two days time and it's been a hellish journey. I first had a massive flare up thinking I had appendicitis went to A&E to be turned away because they didn't have anyone to do an Ultrasound. I was in excruciating pain which I couldn't even speak through, so I ended up going to another hospital and was admitted for seven days. My bloods were weird and my MRI looked strange but they couldn't pin point the problem. First it was appendicitis, then Gall stones, then Crohns, then Colitis. Therefore, in typical NHS fashion they didn't know what was wrong so I was put on multiple antibiotics in the hopes that it would go away... And of course I've struggled to recover from it ever since. It was only through multiple fainting spells, acid reflux, pain etc. That I was even seen by a gynaecologist and only through private medical insurance could I get past having just an ultrasound scan (which normally led to being discharged). I was also told I could have both Crohns and Endometriosis so I'm hoping this surgery will finally give me an answer so I can start living my life again.
Sorry for the huge rant but it's just really nice to be able to speak to people who have been through the same things as me xx
