I had my diagnostic laparoscopy 8 days ago, performed by a BSGE endo epecialist. I had quite severe symptoms so was expecting it to be bad but she said she only found a few spots of "very minimal" endo in my pouch of douglas, both uterosacral ligaments and vesicouterine pouch, which she removed (she said it was excised, although the surgeon I saw on the day said they ablated some..), and I have now been discharged. However, I'm still in pain (not just surgical pain- the same pain I had before) and unsure what to do now!
My symptoms are pelvic pain mostly during periods but also throughout my cycle, left leg and groin pain/numbness, pain and bleeding during and after sex, regularly bleeding old blood mid cycle, constipation, bloating, fatigue. I've also been having other weird symptoms like pain/numbness in arms, shortness of breath and stabbing pain in centre of chest, so thought I might have had endo on diaphragm but she insisted she checked the whole underside of diaphragm and everything was clear. I have been tested for what seems like everything else possible (STIs, PID, smear tests etc) and everything is negative. I wondered about adenomyosis, but my I've had several ultrasounds and an MRI come back clear, plus my consultant said the uterus didn't look adenomyotic.
Just wondered if anyone has had this issue and figured out something else was wrong further down the line? I know this is not normal for me- I've never had a painful period in my life until January this year (I'm 29), now I feel like I'm going insane!
