I’m new here. I am beginning to think endo is the culprit to almost every medical issue I have been experiencing. I was diagnosed but no one explained how endo could affect so much more of the body. Which leads me to bring up this discussion.
What different parts of your body has endo affected? Have you experienced unusual symptoms or medical comorbidities? Thanks!
So, endometriosis can be found on every single organ/part in the body. Isn't that crazy? Of course, not everyone will experience it everywhere. For me personally, endometriosis has been on my appendix (appendix was removed last year), my ureters, uterus, ovaries, bladder and close to my bowels. I suspect it is elsewhere right now but working on trying to find myself a new doctor to confirm.
I think most of my symptoms I experience are pretty on point with what many other talk about, fatigue, pain, I do get a lot of rectum pain and spasms, which makes me believe I have endo on my rectum. A lot of ovary pain, leg pain, pelvic pain, bloat/inflammation, nausea.
Hope this helps a bit <3 Feel free to ask any questions you have! -Kimberli (team member)
You may well benefit from a hysterectomy, but before you go that route I'd try to find another doctor to weigh in. You want to make sure you have the best information possible before making a decision like that. Please keep us posted! ~Katrina, Endometriosis.net Advocate
Thank you so much Kimberli. I will definitely look up Nancy’s Nook today!
I always feel supported when reading anything here. I’ve never wanted to comment so much until reading the post about places endometriosis can show up. Thank you for being a supportive community. You guys soothe like a hot water bottle and/or a warm cup of tea. 🥰
I appreciate you all. Thank you!
