I am currently 18 years old. I have been suffering with symtoms of endometriosis for over two years. Saw multiple doctors but was always turned away of given some completely irrelevant diagnosis such as constipatation. I finally got in with a highly recommeneded women's health doctor in my area. I was firstly treated for Pelvic Inflammation Disorder. If anything my sytoms became worse while undergoing treatment, so badly I took myself to the ER. After having an ultrasound it was clear to this new doctor what was going on. She 'predominataly' diagnosed me with Endo (what i suspected all along) but wont do surgery because I am still 'so young'. I have been suffering for long enough! I have spent endless amounts of money of tampons and pads, new bed sheets, clothes, plus ultrasounds and medications. I am so tired (have an iron deficiency from losing so much blood) and drained, plus emotional. I am so over this and so over being told that surgery isnt an option. I know once the endo is found and burnt off it can 'grow' back, but it would give me such peice of mind to have to operation. Unfourtunatley nobodt will listen to me or take me seriously. I have been put on a new pill, Zoely, to help regulate my period and calm the pain from the endo, but I dont see it as a long time solution. Has anyone ever been in a similar siuation as me, where nobody is willing to listen to you about endo just because of your age?
