As I have mentioned previously I had my first lap/surgery in september 2011 which was when I got my official diagnosis of endo.Five months later and i have had to leave my jobs because I have been so terribly ill since then.I have not have ONE day gone that i dont feel dreadful! After begging my GP she referred me back to the gynaecologist, now the first gynae I seen made me feel even worse, she didnt listen to what I was saying,or my concerns instead she basically said - well we are all women we just have to deal with it!At which point I said to her , "oh do you have endometriosis as well then?"she replied "no" at which point I burst into tears out of pure frustration.I asked her about the location of my endo to which she told me I had a little in my pelvic cavity.Two days after my appointment I called the head of the gynae dept at my hospital-his secretary took my message, and she actually called me back ten minutes later to tell me that the head gynae wanted to see me in two days time.
I kid you not it was breath of fresh air to actually talk to someone who understood me and knew that what I was experiencing wasnt normal.I asked him about the location of my endo, I had it in peritoneal(sp?)area-left and right, the pouch of douglas and loads in my cervix- so much for just a little in my pelvic cavity eh?Anyhoo my gynae has put me on the list as an in patient for more intense surgery that apperently the lasers are stronger and the surgery is aimed at getting the endo that is alot deeper rooted.
My surgery is expected to be around April .
Does anyone have any advice for me?Has anyone else had to go back in for surgery this quickly?Also does anyone know about this more "intense"surgery and getting kept in as an in patient?
Thanks everyone and sorry for ranting. x
