Hi, I am 21 years old, I have just found out I have endometriosis.. I have had the symptoms for 3 years (didn't know they was symptoms of endo until now). In November 2009 I started with the pain I left it as I thought it was to do with my cycle then from February 2010 I spent 12 weeks in and out of hospital to be told I had a kidney infection the pain still did not go away after treatment. In July 2011 I was rushed into hospital where they removed my appendix and told me that was the cause of my pain. After recovering from the operation I noticed the pain hadn't seemed to of changed in any way so I just presumed it was something to do with "operation after effects" in December 2011 I decided enough was enough so I made an appointment with my GP I had blood tests scans internal scans they informed me I have a haemorrhagic cyst in my left ovary in January 2012 I was yet again took into hospital where they was to remove the cyst, before operating they done a ultrasound scan and internal scan they told me that the operation would consist of a suction operation to remove cyst they done that... 4 months later the pain was very low I hardly had much pain just the odd niggly feeling and a bit of pain in bowel area.. I moved away from home to work after 3 weeks of being in my new job I found it a major struggle to continue on I reported myself to the medical GP on-board the ship where I was informed they cyst had come back.. without no scans just an internal I spoke to my parents about it via Skype and they also found it strange how the doctor had diagnosed me with only doing an internal, after 3 months of struggling I had to make a decision and leave my job and fly back to England I then made an appointment to see my GP back here who sent me for a scan 2 months after my return to find I had grown another cyst, I was then refereed to a Gyno which said I would need a laparoscopy I had the laparoscopy on Friday when I was told I have endometriosis.. I not sure if anyone else feels the same but I feel like someone has put a stop on my life, I feel low and lonely and like no one understands what im going through ive always believed in the fairytale ending.. perfect home,job, husband, children&marriage.. its like I cant see a future without children, since finding this out and reading up on the diagnosis I have even started getting jealous over friends with children.. I just don't understand why I am feeling like this.. I know its a lot to take in but I just don't want to start resenting my friends or family because they have children... Can anyone reply and just help me out a bit.. I feel I have no one to talk to about this that will understand.
