So following on from my last surgery 4 years ago my problems not only continued, but over time actually worsened! It was IBS! It was ‘constipation’. It was ‘anxiety’ and ‘stress’ and ‘fibromyalgia’.
So, I had severe constipation! I had in excess of 20 impactions! I had to manually empty my bowel! As in finger up the bum! I passed blood and snot at times! Sometimes black, sometimes red!
My anus would swell with what I assume was haemorrhoids each month!
I lost my ability to walk! It become difficult!
Drs were always unsure about infection a few times but I forced them to give me antibiotics, thankfully saving my own life unknowingly! BUT I f*caked up one time as I wasn’t sure as the pain eased! Ended up with sepsis.
Got told I had an STI and to go away more or less after spending 5 days hooked to IV fluids and antibiotics.
So now, it turns out, after being fobbed off for 4 years with every diagnosis under the sun, my ovary is actually adhered to my bowel with deeply infiltrating Endo! The bowel is what has been triggering these infections, and the ovary is what’s been causing the bowel issues.
So now they can’t do surgery until all risk of any residual infection has gone, or I will be left with a colostomy bag!
The joys of the NHS and their stance on preventative medicine 🤣
