18 months ago I had a laparoscopy and was told I had endometriosis. I was given Zolodec injections for six months to control the pain. When I went for my follow up appointment, I explained that my symptoms were worse than ever. Severe bleeding (lasting up to 7 weeks) pelvic pain in my left side, abdominal swelling, urine pressure & frequency, back pain & feeling full and bloated. My consultant told me that they weren't even sure if I had endometriosis (even though I had seen the pics after my op) and that it was probably IBS. I was told to take medication for that and basically to go away. After going back to my GP, I was referred to another consultant who found a polyp and perfomed a hysteroscopy and a cystoscopy to remove the polyp and to closer at my bladder. Endometriosis was not confirmed as I would have needed another laparoscopy. I was then referred last week to a Uro gynecologist who performed a uro dynamic test. This showed that I had 140ml of fluid in my abdomen and they don't know what has caused this. Also my fluid intake for a day was 1920ml but my outake was 5450ml. I have now got an emergency appt with my consultant on Thurs and have been told I will need another Laparoscopy to investigate. I have never been so scared. Iknow something is wrong. I am 28 and have two children. Please help and let me know if anyone has had the same sypmtoms.
