I am hoping there is someone out there who is having similar issues to me (obviously dont wish it on anyone) but struggling to make sense of my laparoscopy results. Let me start at the beginning:
For about half a year now I have been struggling with pelvic pain. Sometimes its sharp breath taking twinges but most of the time its period like pain (but worse than my normal pains I used to feel). I feel it in my back as well. Symptoms have been lasting as long as 20 days out of the month and I have been struggling to work as I feel so tired and exhausted from these pains. They are agonising. I also wake in the night sometimes and need to go to the toilet - sometimes when I have urinated I get crippling pain that only goes away after ten mins and when I apply a heat pack. Safe to say I am struggling to cope with the pain and with working whilst in pain. I also dont socialise much anymore as often feel too exhausted and going anywhere where I might have to stand for long periods of time is a no no!
I had a laparoscopy on friday and no endo was found which puzzled the surgeon as he thought it was endo. He did say he found some adhesions that were similar to someone who would have had a cesarian (I have never had a child nor been pregnant). He did not think these adhesions were the main source of the pain but removed them anyway. The adhesions were located on the uterus down by my bladder. He found no cysts or endo anywhere else. Although I didnt ask where he looked - from the photos he showed it was mainly at my uterus and the ovaries not at surrounding organs or hidden areas.
I was too out of it to ask where he had checked (if he checked the pouch of douglas and other areas endo might hide). Now I just feel confused because I've been in so much pain it cant just be for no reason. I'm really scared the pain is going to come back as well. Its so debilitating.
I'm hoping someone can advise if they have had a similar experience and what I can ask the consultant in the follow up appointment?
