Hi Everyone, I hope you're all keeping well!
I just feel like I need to rant this out if I'm quite honest. I went for a Laparoscopy in 2019 and they found my abdominal wall stuck to my bowel through adhesions, the surgeon had no idea where it came from and asked if I had been in a major car crash or had major surgery in that area which I obviously had not (he would have clearly seen some scars on my stomach if he did) and it was never diagnosed as Endo and i was told I was OK and sent home and that was that. I have recently been told by an actual Gynaecologist that it was probably a general surgeon who has done this and didn't actually know what he was looking at and she says all my symptoms point to endo (the fatigue, painful sex, pain when going to the toilet, pain in my pelvis, the terrible bloating, unknown heavy bleeding which isn't a period) some of which got better when I was put on the depo injection and obviously when they cut those adhesions away. But I'm still living in pain everyday and I'm only 23 but yet I feel I live the life of an old person. I went in for another lap only yesterday and the consultant was so dismissive. He said he found no endo on my uterus (which isnt a surprise to me, as its actually suspected to be around my bowel) and when I asked him if he checked my bowel he said he didn't and say that all my symptoms where 'probably just ibs' and he laughed and walked away. I ve been tested recently for IBS and Crohns and all that has came back negative and now I feel utterly heartbroken and I feel I'm back to square one. I thought I was finally going to be diagnosed and would be set on for a plan to help live a more normal life.
Sorry for such the long rant, I just feel so alone and confused. If anyone has any advice or has been through something similar I would to hear 💖
