Hi I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis and an endometrioma cyst on my left ovary. I am in a lot pain especially during my period. I am due to have an operation in sept to remove the cyst and treat the endo but my consultant has said it may not help and i could end up having a hysterectomy!! I have been signed of work for the last 6 weeks due to the intense pain as i have a slightly manual job. My emploers are hassling me to return to work asap but i am scared to go back as each month i am in agony and am doubled over in pain feel like i am going to pass out and often cannot really move from the sofa!! They want me to see the work doctor - not sure what gud ths will do!! Dont know whether to go back to work now or wait till ive had my op. Sorry to go on but i am fed up with the pain and the stress from work. Any advice will be appreciated!
