So I've always been super fit, healthy and active, until the past 6 months I have had ongoing excruciating pain. Due to light periods my whole life, they ruled out endo and I was on NINE lots of antibiotics, getting passed dr to dr thinking I had an infection.
Eventually I was put under for a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy and it was shown I definitely have endometriosis. I was on the pill 10 years, then pregnant straight after, so those 11 years were masked by that. I remember my son was 3 months old and this major sharp pain started. It was on and off over the past 9 years, until the past 6 months where it was non stop.
Now I'm thinking as I"ve been athlete fit my whole life until this year, has that helped masked my symptoms too? I'm worried where to from here, as my health has been so bad this year I haven't been my usual freaky fit self (exercise 10-14 times a week prior to this year). What can I do? Hormonal birth control that's suggested sends me crazy, weight gain and 24/7 moods so I don't even feel like it's an option. I'm finally at a point I've met someone nice and would like kids in the next couple years, so hysterectomy isn't an option.
Please help as this was something both my surgeon and I were certain I didn't have, so were very surprised with the findings. Where to from here? :(
