Hi everyone, was just looking for some advice on google and came across this site so thought I would give it a go. I am 27yrs old and was diagnosed with endo approx 12 months ago after having years of problems. I had a laparoscopy last December during which the surgeon drained 4 cysts, removed some scarring and did something to my bowel (it was fused together with adhesions). Following on from the surgery I have been placed on the cerazette pill which did seem to help for a while. Anyway over the last couple of months the symptoms have come back with a vengeance, I have been to my GP who has referred me back to a specialist and I am currently waiting for that appointment to come through. I also have some new symptoms and wondered if anyone else suffers with these as I feel like I am going a little crazy and don't know who to turn to! My family don't seem to understand how painful/humiliating this is and I am feeling really low at the moment, I'm off work as the pain is so bad and sitting around the house with no one to confide in is only making me feel worse. So here is my list of symptoms:
Severe pain in my lower back and legs
Stabbing pains in the right hand side of my abdomen
Shooting pains which seem to go up inside my vagina
Pain when going to the loo!
Intermittent bleeding - which seems to last an hour or so and then stop but can be very heavy
Bleeding after sex
Bleeding after bowel movement
Does anyone else suffer with the same symptoms and have any advice for me please? I'm at the stage where I am willing to try anything.
Thank you x
