Endometriosis and ?

Dear all,

Since Nov 2008 I have suffered nausea, cramping, wind, bloating and a weight loss of 20kgs. Stools vary from hard to soft, once every two days. Symptoms vary with my menstrual cycle. I saw a gastroenterologist who dismissed me early on after taking a series of blood tests. In March of this year, I asked my GP to give me a referral to a surgeon - a laparoscopy expert and gynaecologist. He performed a laparoscopy and found stage 4/5 endo on the small and large bowel, among other areas. Could this explain my symptoms?

I am three weeks past surgery and the surgeon has suggested I now see a gastroenterologist of his recommendation - to perform a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I no longer am experiencing cramping. Do you think this is the right course? Could the endo be inside the bowel and would this account for the symptoms?

Thanks so much for your time
Allannah

I don't know about the wait loss or wind but I had indo really bad before I had my hystorectomy and it can be really painfull. There were times that I didn't want to get out of bed. It sounds like your doc is taking the right steps to make sure your ok. I didn't get any of that until I found my gynaecologist that performed my surgery so be thankfull you have doctors that are taking you seriously and good luck I wish you the best and I will pray for you : )
