Hello all! I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to share their experiences or shed some light on my current situation? 🙂
I have recently had an ultrasound which revealed fluid-filled sacks on my ovaries and fluid in my pouch of Douglas. I have also been told that my uterus tips backwards? I'm not sure exactly what that means medically speaking lol
I am now in the situation whereby, due to corona, I am waiting for things to return to normal so that I can have a laparoscopy to diagnose endo and blood tests to rule out polycystic ovary syndrome. This is the extent of what my GP has shared so far.
I am feeling quite overwhelmed with all of this information and my thoughts are on hyper-drive, hence still being awake! My main symptoms are severe bloating, stabbing pain in rectum as well as alternating constipation-diarrhoea (worse during period and ovulation), abdominal pain and pain during and just after sex. I've been told it is IBS since I started presenting with bowel symptoms at 12 years old.
Can anyone relate to this? I am really wondering where, if anywhere, endo would be located and what stage it would be, whether surgery would be necessary etc? I have read so many terrifying stories about bowel endo particularly. I am also worried about diagnosis, as I have read that it is hard to diagnose endo in the pouch of Douglas by laparoscopy? If anyone can shed light on any of this and put my mind at rest that would be a great help ❤️
