I hope my message finds most of you not feeling too rubbish today, unlike myself!
I am 24, have had endo since the age of 12 and was diagnosed with a firsy lap at 19, they found a small amount on my ovary which they left and fitted a mirena coil. I was seeing improvement in my pain (though not pain free) for about the first 2 years but still had the fatigue and other symptoms so I was also put on the Cerazette pill. I continued to go to my Gynae appointments as my condition started getting quite bad again and asked if there was anyway they could have another look to see if it had spread and also if I had any on my bowel. I was fobbed off and told I was too young and had too much bowel to check so I had given up going for about the last year or so.
I started to attend my local support group which has helped me so much and the ladies there suggested I see a diffrent consultant at another Trust. My GP kindly referred me and I had my appointment on Friday. I was slightly worried when a male registrar saw me but he was brilliant! He has suggested I have my second lap and they will laser anything they find. I am so grateful that I am finnaly being listened to!
Sorry for babbling I am just so shocked that someone took any notice! My questions is: my first lap was quite pain free but then they just 'had a look' this time they will be lasering some endo off so I am a bit apprehensive. Can anyone give me any advice or experience between their laps?
