Pelvic pain continued... surgery results.

Follow up from that thread ^

I had my laparoscopy today. The surgery itself went well, and I'm feeling really good, considering the pain and stuff, but the results were not good.
It turns out that I have severe endometriosis. There was too much of it and it bled so much that he couldn't get any of it out.
The plan of action now is to go on Lupron and then try the surgery again in 6-8 months.

Dear God,
I would like a new body please. This one seems to be broken.

Dang, girl >.< I'm glad your surgery went well but that sucks that you'll have to do it pretty much all over again.

Ooh no :(. That really sucks.. At least they know what is wrong now though and can go about treating it the best they can...I hope in the next surgery they can get rid of it..

Glad something finally came up during surgery that is to be fixed. Good luck!

I already commented that on Facebook, but can just repeat it: Warm hugs to you and good luck for the next surgery. At least you and they know now and can really prepare to remove all of it.

Sorry you have to wait! The good side is - they figured out what is wrong and now they have a plan of action to deal with it. Yippeee for that.

Thank you guys for your awesome support. I am very appreciative.

I guess I am a bit let down a the results. Endo is unfortunately a lifelong battle (well.. as long as your uterus is functioning) and that it's so severe is just ugh.

Anyways, on a more positive note, I had a good night's sleep (though drug induced lol) and while the pain is sharp and achey this morning, recovery is going to be a breeze compared to my knee.
