Re: Endometriosis on the bowel
I have a similar issue. I had gallbladder surgery back in April and my doc found it everywhere...I never knew I had it either. I've always suffered from awful menstrual cramps and pelvic pain, but never had it checked out. My surgeon found endo tissue on my colon, small intestines, bladder and my liver! The doc didn't remove what he found (only took biopsies). Later on I had a CT scan which showed alot of free fluid in my pelvis, I am guessing from the endometriosis. I am now taking Lupron injections every month in hopes to shrink some of the endo tissue. I have had 5 shots now, and honestly don't think it's made much of a difference in my pain. I am seeing my Gyn in a week or so, and am preparing myself for him saying that he wants to operate to remove all of it. I am only 20, and I am hoping that having this doesn't decrease my fertility (not even thinking about having kids now, but in the future). Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone...my case doesn't seem near as extreme as yours though.
Please take care!
