I wonder if anyone can help me, I had an operation 7 weeks ago to remove a large lump of endometriosis that was causing me sharp, raw pains on the right hand side of abdomen/pelvis. This was discovered when I had an MRI scan and then a biospy. Another larger lump was also found when I had a CT scan however they left this as they didn't think it was causing me pain at the time!! However since the operation I have had excruciating pain - abdomen, pelvis, lower back, hips and legs - at times making it very difficult to walk. I have been back to see my consultant and he has referred me to a Gynae as he was a general surgeon. It is possible that the larger lump (although higher in my abdomen) is now causing the pain and may possibly be endo as well, however I am still getting a lot of pain in my right hand side pelvis and they think it is likely that I have endo deeper down (as previous lump was taken out as open surgery (but they didn't go deep enough or hunt around for more).
I wanted to ask if anyone gets more pain or discomfort when their bladder is full and they need to pass urine? This seems to give me a dull throb in my right hand side pelvis and I wondered if it is possible that I may have endo on or near my bladder? Also when I had my MRI and CT scans they showed the lumps of endo but no one mentioned any adhesions. would these show up on these types of scans? I know endo doesn't unless it has formed into a lump. Thanks in advance for your help, I have found this website so supportive and informative! I am due to have a lap soon but wanted to ask your opinions first. I seem to have different excruciating pains a week before my period and over it and then once this finishes I have pain on a daily basis but to no where near the degree of prior to my period or during it. Do other people notice that their pains change - either location or degree of pain throughout the month?
