Bowel Endometriosis

Bowel Endometriosis

Reading about everyone's experiences I see that many people have been diagnosed with bowel endometriosos. I was just wondering how this was diagnosed? I have been having GI symptoms ever since I was diagnosed with endometriosis and my doctor recommended seeing a surgeon for a colonoscopy.I'm a bit apprehensive because she mentioned things like ulcerative colitis. Any feedback about any of your experiences would be appreciated:)

Does Anyone Know Of A Doctor With A Lot Of Experience With Bowel Endo?

Does Anyone Know Of A Doctor With A Lot Of Experience With Bowel Endo?

I️ really need help with bowel endo! Below is the situation.

Summer 2016: rectal bleeding during my period along with an acute episode of bowel pain and urgency (feels like severe food poisoning) at the onset of each period begins
Sept 2016: colonoscopy was completely normal other than severe cramping halfway through the procedure that woke me up out of fentanyl sedation! Was told the rectal bleeding was due to hormonal changes and I️ did not need another colonoscopy until I’m 50.
Nov 2016:… read more

Will your hysterectomy put you into menopause? My doctor said we wouldn’t do a bowel resection if I was close to menopause, since my symptoms would go away or at least reduce greatly after menopause… read more

Has Anyone Had Pain Come Back Very Shortly After A Laparoscopy?

Has Anyone Had Pain Come Back Very Shortly After A Laparoscopy?

I had Laparoscopy surgery 6 weeks ago. They lysed a lot of adhesions that were on the bowel. I was feeling fine but the last week I am experiencing pain again. I have been told that they will come back but I was wondering if anyone has experienced this?

Average Healing Time Post Lap??

Average Healing Time Post Lap??

Hey friendos! I know everyone will be quite different and it depends on how extensive the surgery is etc, but just trying to get an idea of avg recovery time post lap? When could you go for a bike ride, lift weights, walk half an hour etc? My Dr said anywhere from 2-6 weeks off work (I’m a physio). I’m having 3 golf ball sized endometriomas removed, excision to optimise the pelvis/reproductive system, possible D&C and explore elsewhere to see what we’re dealing with for a more extensive surgerg… read more

Laparoscopic Surgery... Opinions Wanted!

Laparoscopic Surgery... Opinions Wanted!

I have a hospital appointment on the 23rd January to decide if I want to go ahead with the laparoscopic surgery to remove the scarring from my bowel.

I'm nervous about this as I have read how surgery has made it worse for some people and also... The biggest fear, bowel being ruptured!

Has anyone else had endo on the bowel and had this surgery?
Did it help with stomach pains/bowel movements etc?
Would you recommend the surgery?

I know the Obvious answer is have the surgery but I wondered… read more

Hysterectomy In Under 30s

Hysterectomy In Under 30s

I'm just looking for stories about how it went for women under 30. I'm 28 and I'm having one done within the next five months (Dr said two but I'm being realistic). I have one child, been pregnant twice, and my husband and I are happy with one child.

How long was the hospital stay?
How long was the recovery time?
Did it help? My dr is talking 80% + reduction in pain levels. He is very sure I have adenomyosis on top of the endometriosis, so the hysterectomy should really help.

Hey guys sorry for the delay. The only way I know it's on my colon is from surgery and the pain I have when I have a bm or even feel my bowels moving around in my stomach is excruciating.

I kept… read more

Difference Between Ablation And Excision

Difference Between Ablation And Excision

Good Morning everyone,
I have seen some posts about someone saying that the doctor must have done an ablation not excision.
What is ablation?
I know mine was excision.

Advice Please?

Advice Please?

Hiya,

Could you please give me your honest advice/thoughts? Currently at the end of my tether and don't know who else to turn to.

Since I was 14 (now almost 26) I have seen various different doctors and a gynaecologist being told all sorts of different things but all of them have said they suspect I have endometriosis. With my current doctor she is the best one I have seen to date and is really clued up on the disease and says she is 100% sure I have it and all my symptoms match, there's… read more

I Want To Know If Someone Ever Was Told That They Dont Expect It To Be Severe Endometriosis And Turns Out It Was?

I Want To Know If Someone Ever Was Told That They Dont Expect It To Be Severe Endometriosis And Turns Out It Was?

The reason I ask is because I have a laparoscopy surgery coming up next Thurs and basically the surgical scheduler stated that Dr Poston told her that she didn't think it was that serious of endo but I wanted to know was anyone else ever told that and then ended up it was severe enough that surgery took longer? I just don't like being told that when they don't really know and that is why they are doing this

thanks in advance

I think they can estimate the amount of endo but they cannot know. So if they suspect endo in places like the wall of your bowl etc they usually work with specialists in this field who can enter the… read more
