Hey guys. Getting really frustrated at the moment and I don't really know what to do in terms as which direction to push my doctors. Or whether to give up or not.
So I had a diagnostic lap. In October to diagnose endometriosis. Nothing was found. Okay. So I continue to get awful periods and pain, and vomitting when I come on. And in on every 2-3 weeks. Very irregular and draining. I got the mirena fitted a month ago. And I'm still bleeding - except the blood looks more like clots/congealed blood (sorry guys) and it's still painful and irregular... Was wondering what other people's experience of this is...
I have been referred to colorectal as well and they are looking into IBD, IBS and all that sort of thing - waiting for some results from blood tests and other wonderful samples.
I have also been in therapy to try and address the chronic pain I am in. And it helps to some extent. But when it's bad I still have to revolve my life around this. And being a uni student it's really hard to make people understand when I am lacking a diagnosis.
If anyone has any advice or similar experience that would be very helpful.
I know with endo people have had to have more than one lap...
And that there are other gynae issues that it could be... But no idea. Help!!!!
