How many of you ladies have had endometriosis found in your abdomin? I have pelvic pain, digestion issues, pain with/after intercourse, a left ovary that couldn't be found on a recent u/s, ovarian cysts, extreem pain on my left side when examined and most of the endo symtoms (was dx in 1991 with endo) but most of my pain and concerns are in my abdomin/stomach.
I have had 4 laps done in the last 19 years so I'm sure scar tissue around my belly button is present.....could there be so much that the pain i am feeling is from the scar tissue and NOT endo? My stomach will swell, bloat, and get rigid/rock hard for hours at a time (not food related). The nausea can be overwhelming and it feels like there is a bowling ball thats on fire in my belly.
The dr I saw seems to think that the pain in my stomach is not endo related but just scar tissue. She said that out of thousands of surgeries she has done she has only seen one up in the abdomin so I'm guessin not so common?
I am now faced with the choice to have another lap to see if it is endo acting up and possibly cause more scar tissue or just take what the dr said and live with the pain.
Has anyone been through something similar or have any suggestions on what i should do?
Thank you ladies for all your honesty
