Possible endrimetriosis

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi I'm new to the forum just wanted to say Hi.

I went to the doctors 6 weeks ago with bad right hip pain and stabbing pains in my right pelvic area.

She sent me for an x Ray and some blood tests, all came back fine she said to come back to see her as she didn't think the hipmpain and the pelvic pain where related.

Went back earlier in agony with pelvic pain

She examined me externally and internally and said she wants me to have a scan, but she thinks its endrimetriosis.

I'm on my period now and I'm in pain so much pain I can walk properly or bend over with out sharp pains.

When I urinate it hurts a little too.

Yesterday when i walked I had pains shooting up my spine.

Can anyone help me ? Does this sound like endrimetriosis?

And ideas on how to relieve this pain

    Hi.

    I'm sorry that you are suffering so much. Your symptoms are very much like mine and I was diagnosed with endo through a laparoscopy op after being referred to hospital for hip and pelvic pain. All treatment will depend on your age. I'm 40 and have had my children and know im lucky so went for the full hysterectomy Inc ovaries but this is a drastic option. There are drugs you can take that stop estrogen so it doesn't grow which is normally done after op to clear as much as they can out. It is a horrible condition but you may not have it,other things like fibroid which can be removed can present the same symptoms too. I hope you get some answers. One thing I have learned from being on here is pushing drs to believe you seems to be a problem so the fact your Dr recognises it as a possibility is a good thing. Good luck

    Hi i am 29 and been suffering with endo for the passed 10 years i have had 8 laproscopies i was told it would be very unlikely i would have children and ended up having a son. I have suffered in agony with the pain to the point where i have collapsed been admitted to hospital several occassions but because i have had to take strong painkillers for so long they now have little effect. The problem i have now is because i have had so many operations for it i have alot of adhensions and my bowel is stuck to my abdominal wall. I saw my gynaecogist yesterday who told me that the top of my womb is now squashed down with scar tissue and that will be increasing my pain the only option i am left with is a total hysterectomy however because of my age i would have to take HRT and it is proven taken over a long period of time drastically increases the risk of breast cancer. I really hope you are offered treatments and they work for you as no-one understands the pain and suffering of endrometriosis unless you have it yourself. I was given zoledex injections 1 injection every month for 6 months and that did relieve the symptoms for a while but not a permanent fix i really hope you get help with this

      Hi. I decided pain free in my 40s is worth the risk of hrt which is actually less if replacing lost hormones rather than adding more at the natural age when they reduce but still produce. My consultant says as I'm on radar for check ups etc he'd be happy to prescribe into my 60s at a low dose as ovaries actually produce small hormones onto 80s. I hope you find a solution to controlling pain without more ops. Good luck

    Hi

    Well I went for an ultra sound on Friday I had to have an internal one also.

    Yesterday (Monday) I got the results I have 1-2 cysts inside my right ovary and 6 smaller ones inside my left one.

    They don't know about endrimetriosis

      Cysts were all that showed up on my scan which turned out to be chocolate cysts due to endo. It wasn't until I had investigation op that it showed all this and that my ovaries were fused to my uterus and bowel. Not sure why this doesn't show but it doesn't. Will these results go to a consultant for you to have a further meeting to discuss?

      Hi. It could be worry and your tense but endo and cysts causes those sorts of pains too. You're all booked in so best to get all sorted. I was worried about having my first op too but I promise it's like going to sleep and then waking up again. Yes it is sore but the worst part is first bit when they give you morphine which takes it away. Even after my hysterectomy I didn't need pain killers after first few days. Are you in on a day case? I will warn you you can wait hours as could be later on list so take magazines or something to occupy you. Good luck

    Hi,

    I had a D&C with hyperscope and lap on 8/13.I went to the GYN after having a period that last 15+ days with lots of clotting and an unbelievable heavy flow.  We knew I had a cyst on each ovary but there was no talk about endor.  It was only after surgery that the doc told my husband he removed it from my left side. Follow up is on the 27th and at that time we will discuss the possibility of controlling the endor with meds, which I'm on the fence about. 

    I I will tell you I feel so much better after surgery than before. I didn't realize how much it was draining my energy. I was sore for the first few days. Now I'm tender and I don't have much energy but it's different and I can feel that once I recover it will be so much better. 

    The worst part was contispation from the pain meds. Try and drink tons of water and take stool softeners.

      I think it may depend as no one was allowed to stay with patients in my hospital at all. I was allocated a bed told to change into surgical gown,get my lovely stocking. Then surgeon and anaesthetist came to explain everything, do consent forms and give rough idea of where I was on list then it's just waiting my turn. Good luck
