I'm just wondering if anyone has been diagnosed or is awaiting a diagnosis/or treatment of endo/adhesions post c-section. All my symptoms point to this. Despite having all the hallmarks of endo growing up it was never checked and always cast off as IBS. I had a c section 3 years ago (no issues with conceiving) and the lower right side abdominal pain has gotten progressively worse in the last 8 months.
Had a trans-vaginal ultrasound which only indicated one fibroid.
I had an MRI pelvic scan prior to lockdown and that came back normal but I know that this only picks up deep endo. I experience pain on and off my period, and it plays havoc with my bowel too. I experience referring pain up the back on the right hand side towards the shoulder blade. It alternates between dull, tugging pain to nerve like sensitivity to pulsing type pain which is usually when i'm due/on or when I ovulate.
My lap was postponed - was due 30 march so was very close. My partner and I are keen to try for another baby, but the whole process creates a lot of anxiety. I'm scared to have another c section that might create more adhesions (in addition to the lap). I'm not sure whether it's possible or safe to have a baby vaginally if I do have adhesions. The Gynae consultant seemed quite blase about it - he said my mri indicates it's not infiltrated anywhere, and he said "you may well have stage 1 or 2 endo" and also said "usually adhesions stretch out with pregnancy". I'm not so convinced though.
What are others' experiences? Any positive reassuring ones?
Please note, I know that others find it difficult conceiving so apologies if this is difficult to discuss.
