I'm currently recovering from a lap operation which I had to remove a large 10cm chocolate cyst from my left ovary. After about 5 years they were able to finally confirm endometriosis after this operation, they found other cysts and also adhesions on the cavity wall and on the bowel. I have been back and forth to the doctors for years so it's a relief to finally have a diagnosis. It's so stressful when you know that there is something wrong with you but nothing gets done about it! The question I have is about the fatigue. I have struggled with really bad fatigue over these years, particularly around the time of my period, to the extent where it affects my work and my personal life. Does anyone else have these problems with fatigue? After doing some reading about other people's experience it sound like it could perhaps be endo related? Any advice or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated! As I'm only recently diagnosed I'm still trying to get my head round it all and what it means for me.
