After an exploratory 2 hour Lap on 5th November dividing & removing extensive adhesions to be told no endometriosis was seen now off you go, see you - goodbye!
Im so peed off & upset that just like before the lap my pain & various other health issues are still persisting at the same times each month when I’m ovulating and menstruating.
Im disappointed after waiting months for some kind of relief to have it missed & have to go through the whole process again, waiting in pain. We build ourselves up for the lap, only going through with it so we don’t have to deal with this agony any longer. I was & still am terrified of the whole surgery & whats involved.
Ive also noticed additional symptoms relating to Endo which is tooth & gum pain. The last year or so Id repeatedly have tooth ache/swelling. At one point last summer my dentist made a referral to a Maxio-facial surgeon as I kept having symptoms of an infection, appearing as an abscess but nothing showing on X Ray.
The Max surgeon found nothing wrong as the pain & swelling reduced so I just carried on spending a fortune on dental products in an attempt to improve my gum/teeth issues.
Since my lap Ive noticed the pain & gum swelling starts a few days before I’m ovulating. My face is swelled left side & my belly has also flared up again today! The pains exactly as before if not worse! Has anyone ever suffered with dental issues linked with Endo?
Ive kept on at my Gynae’s Secretary & got an appointment end of Feb! I don’t want him going near me again but not sure how to go about getting an appointment with a specialist with no confirmed diagnosis.
Ive refused hormone treatment as Id had the mirena for 15 years & needed to give my body a break. The depression and anxiety I suffered as a side effect was to be honest quite scary. I don’t want hormones thrown at me again.
Why Is this awful disease so difficult to get the right care/treatment for? Its 2019 ffs!!!
Sorry for long post, i feel totally at loss & in agony, again!
