I think we all get used to living with things and accept them as normal. I have endo and had surgery about 7 years ago to clear our the ‘cobwebs’ in my tubes and remove the cysts but for as long as I can remember I’ve always been bloated and gassy. Literally every hour of every day.
The only time I may not be bloated (and it’s not all the time) is when I wake up in the morning and my stomach feels empty and relatively flat. It feels amazing, until I need to eat and no matter what I eat or drink m it will make me bloated. I’ve experimented with different foods - removing / adding but nothing seems to work.
I’m 34 now with no children, weigh 115lbs and I joke that when I do get pregnant I won’t get stretch marks because I’m so used to feeling like I’m pregnant with twins.
But I’m really over it now. I just want to feel somewhat normal. I have never been tested for IBS or SIBO. I assume that it is largely linked to endo but I’m not sure so before I pay hundreds of dollars for loads of tests, I thought I’d reach out and see if anyone else had this similar issue? If so, what did you discover?
Would love to hear your thoughts and findings.
Much appreciated, Jaye.
