I have been diagnosed with Endometriosis today after my first lap at 25. I had quite a lot of scar tissue on my womb especially the right side which they removed. Funny thing most of pelvic and leg pain is all on the left side.Have been in a lot of pain especially when i came round so drugged up to my eyeballs with every painkiller going. Made me feel very faint and sick so decided to keep me in.
Very nervous about now what this all means, especially of conceiving but I am sure I will find this out when I next see my consultant. They told me my tubes were ok which is a positive.
Although nervous, I am so pleased that I have an answer to all these years of not knowing and that I was right all along! We really do know our bodies and we must fight even when being dismissed by our doctors.
I must say even though I have hard with my doctor and getting here , the NHS have proved themselves to be brilliant today! The nurses have been brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. All the ladies in the ward commented how great the staff are and how hard they work.
Thank you to all your support and advice on this site, it really has been such a help knowing you are not on your own.
