I'm 48 and have just discovered I've had endo for years unknowingly.
I've recently had surgery to remove my left ovary and fallopian tube as there was a cyst. During surgery she discovered the ovary was totally stuck to my pelvic wall and there were many endometrial lesions in various fossa. (Not really sure what they are.)
My problem is I was healing nicely and was pain free and then around week 5 or 6 post op I began to experience worse pain than I had the operation for in the first place! It's like period pain (which was probably endo pain all along) a sort of pulling deep within. I've seen the surgeon who couldn't think what it was and suggested it was phantom pain.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
All thoughts mush appreciated. I'm trying to stay calm but am panicking that I'm stuck like this forever now.
