I'm 33 years old. I've been dealing with endometreosis for the past 4 years. I have had horrific experiences of the NHS specifically in the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of endometriosis, resulting in me spending a lot of money on 3 major surgeries privately.
I finally decided to go through with a full hysterectomy. Although theres no guarantee I will be pain free, theres a 90% chance (according to the US ) so I'm playing the odds!!!
I have trawled through hundreds of websites, read countless medical journals and researched endometreosis every which way I can. I'm hoping upon all hope in this world that it will not return- but I'm ready if it does.
I have experienced chronic pain that I dont think any description can quite do justice, misinformation, dismissal from medical professionals and utter utter fear that my life was basically over.
Right now, I'm recovering from my hysterectomy amazingly well, at home with my 3 gorgeous boys and my husband is doing his utmost to keep our world spinning.
I feel a deep calm that I have finally taken a step that could change my life. I think being told you have this chronic condition that is painful and debilitating in so many ways, and you just have to live with it is evil. And I want to reassure every struggling that there are diets that help, there are laparoscopies that help and if you're done having a family theres loads more that can help.
If you need to talk, moan, scream, cry (via message😂) please feel free to push it in my direction. You will receive nothing but love, understanding and support.
I'm hoping my hell is ended, I hope to support anyone through theirs that I can xxxx
