Hi I am currently on waiting list for lap, am in constant agony, exhausted beyond words (and lots of other symptoms inc pcos) and until i started reading some forums yesterday, had began to believe i was imagining all my pain. I am convinced i have endo, my gran had hysterectomy at 30, my mum had hysto at 49 and they found severe endo while doing that. I have had to start down the route of "absence management meetings" and "occ health" at work. They were v nice and trying to understand and i thought id explained sufficiently until i was asked "do you think it could be your chair doing this?" I have a 6 yr old daughter but had been on microgynon and was on this when i conceived her. I have been trying for over 3 yrs to get pg also but my fear of not being able to have a sibling has been totally overidden by my fear of not being fixed -or more accurately, not being able to find ways of managing my pain. i have had problems for years but the last 6 months things have just plummeted. On top of the awful pains etc, i have this feeling that something is rotting inside me and it makes me feel sick which i know sounds bizarre but it is that strong it is giving me nausea.
I guess would just like some advice from those who have already had confirmed/know what i can expect in the months to come. I am on co-codamol 30/500 but this is no longer working so going to go back to gp to discuss pain med alternatives and see if can speed up laparoscopy,
sorry to ramble but i am just at rock bottom with this and i think the being in limbo doesnt help. also petrified they dont find it on 1st lap as gynae said only find in 50% then people will think i am lying
