Re: Endometriosis on the bowel
Hi! I just want to say I had a hysterectomy about eight years ago. I found out the day I had it that I had endometriosis. The surgeon said that I had the worst case he ever saw but it went undiagnosed. I was told by 4 different doctors from the time I was 16 that I would not be able to have children but was never told why. Anyway, I have three beautiful miracle children that I never thought was possible.
I am writing because the doctor told me at the time, that he was unable to get all the endometriosis out. I am now having problems with my bowels and I am afraid that the endometriosis has spread to the bowels. I have severe cramping (which feels worse than when I had my cycles), bloating (to the point that I can only wear sweats), diarrhea, vomitting, dizziness, hungry all the time but I can't eat without being in the bathroom within 20 minutes or less, mucous, and extremely tired. I have trouble getting more than 10 feet from my bathroom and I never know when I will need to go. I work full time (and I haven't been to work in 6 weeks) and I am a full time student.
I am having a really hard time getting the energy to get my homework done when all I want to do is sleep when I am not on the toilet. I am also afraid to leave my house because I'm afraid I will need to go and not have a bathroom to get to. My question to you is, did you have similar symptoms or should I find a new doctor who won't argue with me about having a colonoscopy and a laproscopy done? I want to be able to rule everything out. I want to go back to work and I want to be back to normal. I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
