Dear Dr, I have suffered with unbearable periods since the age of 11 (I am now 23). My symptoms are heavy bleeding for 7 days, large blood clots, back pain, flooding, painful intercourse, leg pain, depression, mood swings, loss of stale brown blood, irregular bleeding etc. I always have to spend at least 2 days in bed with painkillers and a hotwater bottle. Over the past few years no doctors have attempted to help me until August this year when I changed my doctors for the 3rd time, the doctor straight away said Endometriosis to me and referred me to the hospital. On the 17th December 2001 I underwent a Laparoscopy, when I came round from the op the nurse told me only one incision had been made in my belly button because they could not find anything! I am due to go back to the hospital on the 31st December, I had a period last week and it was one of my worst my doctor even asked if I was having a miscarriage ( I am on the pill also)! I cannot go on like this I know I should be pleased if they cannot find anything but to be honest I am not because I cannot go on like this anymore. I would really appreciate your advise and what questions to ask when I go back to the hospital.
