Good evening everyone. I'm new here and desperately need to talk to someone who isn't my husband.
So where should I start.
I've suffered with abdominal, pelvic pains, irregular periods and pain during sex. Gradually getting worse over the years. I've been tested for all sorts being told I have pollycystic ovaries. That I have ibs and a few other things. I even had to go to a&e last year due to agonising pelvic pain. I got kept in with them thinking it was my appendix. I was sent home the follow day after being told it was non specific abdominal pain.
In January this year I went back to the doctors feeling deflated yet determined to get answers. I spoke to a new doctor who I'd not met before. She told me she wanted me to come back later that day to have pelvic exam. When I had the exam she said my cervix looks abnormal and had characteristics of cancer. She sent me for an urgent referral to the gyno who I got to see after a week. He took a quick look and said just a few cysts on there. Nothing to worry about. He also did a pelvic exam and a transvaginal scan. I nearly cried in pain. It was all agonising. He said he felt endometrial lesions. He then said he wants to do I diagnostic laparoscopy. 2 weeks later I had my pre op and now here I am 2 days away from having it! It's all happening so quickly I'm not going to lie I am a little scared. What if he saw/felt something and didn't tell me? Can he do that? He said if he can he will try to zap away any endometriosis he can get to easily. He never mentioned biopsies but at my pre op I was told I would be having biopsies too.
Since the examinations I have been having so much more pain. Loss of appetite. Weight loss. It's been horrible. It's almost as though they disrupted something and now it's playing havoc with me. I've had totake days off of work.
Sorry for the moan bur I think my husband's fed of hearing it now.
