Re: Severe Endometriosis .. help!
your story is very similar to mine. i was admitted to the hospital for severe pain, vomiting, and cramps. after a CT scan and a "funny looking appendix" they were ready to open me up. a female doc suspected endo, as did i, so she performed a lap and sure enough i have endo everywhere. i am stage 3 but have it on my intestines so i get horrific diarrhea - not fun when you work out of your car for a living.
since my lap i feel much better. some days of my period arent fun, but they arent the hell that they used to be. now, the lap is only a temporary fix and will only give relief for a few months to a year, tops. to me, it was worth it. even if relief is only short lived, i would pay anything to not have to go through that hell.
ndo is not just severe cramps. my DH has a hard time understanding the pain so my OBGYN told him to super glue his penis to his stomach and then try to move normally. only then will a man feel that kind of pain.
