Endometriosis is back

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I had a colonoscopy yesterday to find out the reason why I've had pain and been bleeding from my bowel.

They couldn't finish the test because it was too painful. I was on sedation and gas and air, but it was pretty unbearable.
Anyway, my bowel specialist said he'd seen enough of what he needed to see anyway...
I've aparently got endometriosis growing in the rectum part of my bowel and the sigmoid bit (I think thats like the first bend) is a bit twisted up and stuff because of sever adhesion. This explains all tha pain I get just before needing the loo and that.

Feeling a bit jumbled up in the head right now. Last night I was wide awake for 3 hours, which never happens to me usually.

I just feel a bit stupid because I'd managed to convince myself that the endometriosis might not come back; and during my last operation they didn't find any. It's just sort of re-hitting me that this is a chronic thing that I'm just going to have to deal with for the rest of my life and all the complications that go with it, so I'm feeling a little freaked out. And sore.

Luckily I have surgery booked for early jan anyway because they're sorting out this odd womb condition I have... two wombs, one cervix. They're taking the left one out because it had no outlet and is causing a lot of problems. Hopefully it won't affect the other one.
But it's looking likely that I'll need some bowel removing too.

Just feel like I'm back at square one suddenly.

    Oh dear... Sorry to hear all that. :(

    But you're not in square one, remember that. You're still going to have something fixed and after that there will be less trouble, right? Not to mention that your life has moved ahead in the last few months.
