Long story, hopefully cut short !
I had a laparoscopy on 1st October, which concluded that I didn't have endo ! However, I did have something called pelvic congestion syndrome ?? Anyway, had to change pill to progesterone only, and have been given mefenamic acid to see how this works, but will be back to see gyno in January to see how my body is responding etc.
Anyway, apart from this. 3 days after my operation, I felt extremely unwell, it turns out I had an infection, but not because of the wounds and after care. It appears the infection may have come from the equipment. I was on Augmentin 635mg 3x a day to blast this infection out.
Now, here is where I need advice. Has anyone had an infection before?
It has been 4 weeks since I originally had the infection, and I am exhausted. I feel physically and mentally drained. All I currently do is sleep for Europe. I go out for an hour to get fresh air and sleep for 6 !
My eating habits haven't been the same, I do not eat half as much as I usually do, and despite making sure I eat something everyday, it is a struggle. I feel like I am a zombie trapped in someone else's body .
I know what they mean, when they say "lights are on, but no one is home".
The doctor has sent me for blood tests, but whilst I wait for the results, I wanted to know if anyone had a similar experience as myself?
I am 23, and feel so alone right now.
