Hi everyone, I am new to the site as I was only diagnosed with endo
In May 12. Complete shock! Had a lap, hysteriscopy and wound exploration (opened my c section scar by 3"). Was diagnosed with stage 4 endo with adhesions to the back of my womb and bowel. makes sense of all the issues I have had over the years that I have just struggled with thinking it was "normal".
I have been reading some of your posts and sorry to hear what you are all going through and if through what you are going through someone could give me some advise I would be forever grateful. Of course if I feel I can help anyone I will (being newly diagnosed I'm maybe not so helpful)
I have been taking since march 12, 3 x 5mg norothisterone, the doctor under the advise of the gynea has changed this to 1 x 350mcg norothisterone. I started taking these 2 days ago and now I am bleeding (which I haven't done since my lap) and getting the unbearable waves of pain again. Has anyone else ever has the same?
I am due to have the merina coil fitted on 16th and have read some sorties both good and bad. My only other option is a complete hysterectomy with bowel resection, which at this stage my gynea thinks is not right for me.
Normally I can cope with everything, nothing fazes me, but this I just want to hide myself away (I cannot as I work full time and am so very lucky to have a 6.5 year old daughter).
Sorry not really asked questions just waffled but any advise would be great.
Thanks in advance x
