Hi everyone ,
I am absolutely bloody ( excuse the pun ) gutted. I had my lap this morning and when the consultant came to see me she said :
‘Well you’re really too young for endometriosis so we’ll have a look , but I don’t think we’ll find anything ‘
From that moment I knew the effort would not be put in to me.
I came around to be told - no sign of endo , or anything really and if it’s minute I just have to wait for it to develop. She said my bowels look very slightly odd but nothing too bad. I asked well then how does this explain my bleeding for 30+ days or the fact NOTHING can touch me down below . She didn’t have the answers - expect for saying maybe it’s in my head and I neee therapy . I just burst into tears! I know that I’m in pain , I know I can’t live a normal life of an 18 year old and I KNOW I have not made this up !
She even decided to tell my mum endo doesn’t really exist in this age group , even though my. Mum , nan and aunties all had it from 15 and had a hysterectomy before they were 30!!!!
I can not believe that in 2018 I’m still being told it’s in my head! My 65 year old grandma was told the same thing !!! That was nearly 40 years ago !!!
Just gutted ! X
