I posted a while back about having investigations and hopefully treatment for endometriosis. I was referred for surgery, partly exploratory and partly to treat and remove the endometriosis and also to insert the coil. After the operation, I was told that I do not actually have endometriosis. I'd been told for about 2 years that I did and that this was what had caused the last 10 + years of gynae problems including contributing to the incontinence. Whilst it's really good I don't have endometriosis this did leave me with yet again, no clear answers. Since having the coil inserted, my periods have been much lighter which is great, however the pain really hasn't lessened much and the incontinence is just about as bad as it was. It's also still worse around what would have been my time of the month. My physical health is really not good at the moment with the fibromyalgia being much worse again and more pain from my back issues. I absolutely definitely see a link between my fibromyalgia and how bad that is and how bad my incontinence is. Although researching this topic there isn't terribly much that's conclusive on it.
So much else has been going on with my physical and mental health that more investigations into the gynae issues haven't been able to be the priority just now.
I feel really odd about it not being endometriosis. I felt really stupid for having the operation like everything must have been in my head. Though the surgeon did say to me it wasn't wrong to do it and it wasn't me that wanted the operation it was what the consultant had said was needed to be clear what was going on.
Does anyone else here have fibromyalgia and feel a link between that and their incontinence?
