Hi all “Endo” sufferers I am new to this website and pleased to have the opportunity to talk to others. I am 29 years old and was diagnosed with severe (stage 4) endometriosis 2 years ago following complications when coming off the contraceptive pill. In this time I have had 3 operations, laparoscopic procedures, my third operation most recently. In this operation my left ovary was attached to my main artery in my left leg, kidney damage, bowel damage; you name it I had it yet again, even though they done a tidy up previously 12 months before. Unfortunately the disease has escalated and despite our best efforts we haven’t been able to conceive and not likely to naturally. I am due to finish the Zoladex injections and HRT medication and start the IVF process in January which is good; I like to think they wouldn’t put me through to this if they didn’t think it was worthwhile? I am due to go back to work part time for 4 weeks following recent surgery and looking forward to some normality. I have also started fertility reflexology today and found it very good and hope it will be beneficial especially for next year and to help with the pain I still experience. What a roller-coaster ride this disease can be and every day is different, so trying to remain as positive as possible. It is hard but nice to find a support forum where I can talk to others.
