Re: Endometriosis confusion
Hi... I have pretty bad endo and have seen specialist after specialist. You should look into having a sonohysterogram. It's easy... basically they use a speculum, a very thin, flexible catheter will be inserted into cervix into the lower part of the uterus. The speculum is removed. A vaginal ultrasound probe is then placed into the vagina. Through the catheter, a small amount of saline is injected into the uterus to separate the walls. This allows them to see if there are polyps, fibroid tumors, cysts etc.
I have tried several treatments and am getting ready to try another, Zoladex. Lupron did not help me because I have so many adhesions and endo on my intestines, colon and kidneys. I do not know what stage I am at, but my specialist told me pain has no factor in what stage you are at. Some of her patients are stage 1 and have ten times more pain than stage 3 or 4.
You should NEVER bleed that long. I went today after bleeding for 14 days and she immediately said something is very wrong with that. And is looking into it.
Other than the Lap, what have they tried to help you?? Where are you located? If you are close to where I am I could give you the name of a few great reproductive endocrinologist. That is really who you need to see.
Good luck, I really hope you get some help and find an end to your pain!!!!
