I am totally new to this site after only recently being diagnoised with Endometriosis.
My endo is apparently severe as its covering everything on my left hand side. I had a Laparoscopy on 25 July and have a hospital appointment on 29 October to have a sigmoidoscopy.
I have my second operation booked in for 10 December, with my consultant and a bowl surgeon, my consultant believes that the endo may have gone through my bowl and my bladder. If this is the case I will wake up after my op with a temporary colostomy bag and catheter for 6 weeks.....this terrifies the hell out of me!!!
This has all come as a massive blow to me, as I have been having no pain except heavy periods which I thought was normal. I started getting some pain on my left hand side, which was investigated by having an internal scan. The scan showed that i had a polyp in my womb, my tubes are blocked, I had a cyst in my ovary, I also have hydrosalpinx.
I have been receiving menopause injections for the past few months to dry the endo up before my next op, but since having the injections I feel rubbish. ...Can't sleep well, sick, shaky, my concentration is awful, hot flushes and exhausted. Im trying to carry on working full time but everyday it's getting harder.
I would appreciate any advice, comments or help on how you manage your symptoms. At the moment the future scares me, as I want nothing more than a child but am scared that this won't happen. I have had 3 miscarriages already and am 37.
Thank you for reading this and listening to me....I just feel so scared and alone at times.
