Can endometrios can be in the spine? I have multiple haemangioma in lumbar spine plus lower back and hip pain. Feel I'm on the route to disability as walking is getting so difficult now. I had a laparoscopy two years ago and had deep endometriosis removed from sacro-iliac ligaments and ovary. Gyn then discharged me with no follow up, saying the problem was sorted. Since then the pain has got unbelivably worse, and some days I can barely walk. I also cannot urinate properly and now have to sef-catheterise daily or I get infections. Last year spent a week in hospital with urinary retention. From being super fit and a regular at the gym, I am now very weak in the hips, abdomen and legs, and nothing I do strengthens them. Was told my endometriosis was only mild and it is all gone now so am complaining about nothing. Just think doctors don't believe me any more. Now I can't bend, squat, walk distances, I limp and get stopped in my tracks by hip pain, but my doctors think I've always been this way and am just unfit. What can I do about assumptions and stereotypes? Feel like a woman twice my age. Gyn said it was impossible for endo to be anywhere outside reproductive regions. Kind of feel this is too much of a coincidence as all my problems started from the surgery. Any suggestions?
It would be the first reported case to find endometriosis in the spine. There may be other reasons you are suffering those symptoms not related to endometriosis that need to be investigated. To help determine if your symptoms are all related to endometriosis, a trial of a medication called LUPRON (makes one temporarily menopausal) to see if your symptoms improve will help sort things out.
