New to this site but have read a few other posts and think this is a really supportive place to share our experiences and worries so here are mine
After a long history of problems, pre cancerous cells, cone biopsies laparoscopy and diagnosis of endo, I have finally found a place where people listen to me, give me time and offer me options about how to move forward and manage the pain.
My local nhs drs are very good but not able to offer much in the way of specialist advice so I went up to Middlesborough uni hospital this week and have come away feeling like I finally understand what is going on in my body and that they have ideas on how to help me cope with everything.
It's been 2 and a half years since my first lap and things are starting to get worse again. In fact, it's getting worse very quickly - I am taking tramadol like there is no tomorrow! After speaking at length to the team at Middlesborough I am now waiting for an appointment for a repeat lap where the specialist will cut instead of burn the endo away. I am reassured this is a more effective method and produces better results. My dr also wants to fit the mirena coil whilst I am asleep to see if this extends the time between lap's.
Only thing I am worried about is if I don't get on with the coil, will they be able to get it out of me considering I have a stenosed cervix which doesn't let anything through! I know this from when they tried to do the dye test for fertility.
Anyone out there with a stenosed cervix who has had the coil removed without being under GA?
