I'm so sorry to hear that you're suffering pain, i know how horrible it is and how it can affect everything in your life
The good news is that you've now been diagnosed, which i know feels scary and overwhelming, but to have a diagnosis at least means that you know what's happening in your body.
I too had pain for years and was diagnosed at 19 after many years of begging for help!
I found one of the most helpful things to do was to get as much information as you can, through reliable people and organisations.
This is a condition which can make you feel isolated and alone, but please try to remember that you are not alone and that there are women out there (like me!) who understand the hurt, frustration and pain.
There are also a lot of scare stories out there so try not to get swept away by the most extreme dramatic accounts.
check out endometriosis.org.uk
it's really helpful!
It is also so important to have a medical professional who can give you all the available options, whilst listening to your feelings and opinions.
An endo specialist is thye best option, but its also vital to have someone you trust who can go through your options with you
I was given Zoladex injections which brought on a pseudo menopause which i believe actually caused a lot of problems for me. What works for one person may not always work for another i suppose.
I then had a laparoscopy which eased the pain for quite a while
I don't know how widespread your endo was when they found it?
Please don't feel alone. You're not. This condition can be difficult to cope with but help is out there.
Feel free to PM me anytime
Take care and hugs
