Just spent a week in hospital for severe pelvis pain which was affecting my ability to walk, open bowel or empty bladder. Discharged with mefenamic acid and cocodamol. Has anyone suffered pain from having 2 cyst in their ovaries And one stuck behind uterus. Annoying thing they can't do anything because I am waiting for a lap surgery which I been waiting 3months now.
Severe Pelvis pain from 3 endometriosis c... - Endometriosis UK
Awww I could literally stay in bed until my surgery date. Ite affecting my whole life having the two cyst in one side of my ovaries. I'm having to use a walking stick at the age of 30 and i look 16.
After coming out of hospital from staying there for 7 days I went to see my gp for a referral to another hospital with an actual endo centre as I can not wait any longer. than 12months which my current hospital are saying.
Yes I understand where ure coming from, I use to just lay down and not want to do anything wen I had the pin. Do you know what size the cysts r?
Def get referred to a bsge centre , the surgeons there r so much better and more skilled than a general gynaecologist. BUT the waiting time is still long... up to 6 months. I waited 5 from wen I was put on the list.
if someone said endo will leave me with a walking stick at the age of 30 I would never believe it. The two best ones are rapidly growing that scans have shown my body bleeding into it as it very big. the one behind my uterus hasn't given me much grief since starting the contraceptive pill. I have given 3 names to my gp to refer my reports over to a endo centre hospital as they have pelvis pain centre too, fertility specialist unit. With endo centre you get the after care where in gynaecology department at my hospital your not getting proper treatment.
could I ask how did you cope with months for surgery Its affecting my life and work.
I was given codeine initially when I first was diagnosed and hospitalised for 2 weeks. Then suddenly whilst going for a routine scan they discovered I had 2 more growing in my ovaries and since then the pain has got a lot worse, walking, sitting, wearing trousers or Jean's became hard as it puts strain on the ovaries. I got hospitalised again last 2 weeks for severe pelvis pain and now its managed by taking oral morphine and cocodamol.but it's only brought down the pain from my abdominal area down to the pelvis. I'm using a walking stick to walk as I can't even walk more than 10 steps without the pain starting.
No sadly, unless they have ruptured. Apparently the waiting time is 6months, so after being discharged from hospital i asked my gp to refer me to a hospital that has a endometriosis centre that way I am not amongst other patients who waiting for gynaecological surgery. My hospital isn't a endo centre so I'm in the list amongst other ladies who have womb cancer, cervical cancer etc hence why I'm not classified as emergency. But hopefully my new referral should be straight forward and fast. It's been 9months since I was diagnosed it's taking ages to get a surgery date. I done my pre op assessment in January.
Nope, I went to the gp again today to get a sick note to cover myself for the time off work. Whilst there the doctor tried again for the referral and managed to get me booked into a endometriosis centre hospital for may 15th I'm so happy. It states on the appointment letter it will take upto 10weeks for surgery. But they will decided on the first initial appointment what the outcome would be. x
