I had a 3 month follow up consultation yesterday, following a lap I had at the end of May to remove large cysts and other bits of endo. It's been a horrible experience up to now, it's took an age to actually get referred (although this is not uncommon I know!) and recovery from the op has been very slow. I am still feeling extremely tired and suffering from PMS badly! Thankfully I am not getting much pain which is a great step forward. Another positive was the consultant who I saw yesterday, he was great and really listened and seemed to understand the emotional impact all of this has had as well as the physical. He has recommended that I have the mirena coil to deal with the endo and also to try to sort out my PMS. I think he was going to recommend going on the pill but I have had some really bad experiences on them so he didn't push that thankfully. I was just wondering what it's like having this coil and what other people's experiences have been? I'm hoping it's going to be a wonder cure... but that might be hoping for a bit much eh?
He's also referred me for counselling which on reflection I think it's actually a good idea. It's been a really tough year so far and has taken it's toll. Anyway, I'm waffling now, it's just nice to have somewhere to be able to talk about these things!
Thanks in advance for any comments and advice xxx
