Hi Guys, I have posted on this site before and have to say I am so glad i signed up as I've received some fantastic support and advice. I really need some more advice, I'm starting to get really worried and think that I am not receiving the best advice from my doctors.
I have endo on my bowel, in fact it is covered (so the surgeon said) my left ovary and tube is stuck and wrapped round a part of my bowel. My womb, bladder and bowel are stuck together. My womb has stuck to and pulled up my rectum that everything is now stuck to the back of my body. I have pain going to the loo sometimes (opening bowels) and have awful pain in the bain, hip and legs.
I would like children and have asked for sperm donation (following last lap when surgeon thought everything was okay) I am single you see and it's a case so the Gynae doctor said of now or never for me to conceive i am 36 now.
Condition has got worse and during my vist with the fertitily doctor discussed various things, a lot of which went over my head. He doesn't seem concerned at all about the fact that I have two fibroids (4cm x 6 cm and 4 cm x 3 cm) as well as having all my pelvic organs stuck together. I asked for excision of the endo but he refused becuase I am single and wouldn't benefit as he says endo will come back quick. However I have read that women in their 30's who have this done have the same chances as women in their 30's who have never had endo in it reoccurring and some ladies have lived for years after without any problems.
I think his decision is based on money. that's the impression i got.
He is going to do a hystostopy to see what the condition of my womb is (it was bad last time Gynae Dr looked - adhesions etc) and asked advice from Singleton Hospital. I am so tired, this is dragging on and on,
I guess what I am getting to as is, it is dangerous to have endo on the bowel and should the Dr's seriously consider removing my endo because of the way my pelvic orgrans are stuck?
I have taken Zoladex, Cerezette and various other things. I need to preserve my fertility.
I don't know what to do, it's worrying me and my family. I don't even know how to go about looking for another Dr to speak to. I know it sounds silly but I've really had enough now. it's not fair.
Sorry for going on, really needed to get that all out.
Love to you all, god bless xx
