Struggle For a Diagnosis & Answers

I was diagnosed with endometriosis this past year. I had no indications that this was a concern for me except for infertility. Over a year ago I found out that my one kidney was no longer functioning and had to be removed. When it was removed they found that the endometriosis had grown into the tube from my kidney to my bladder causing my kidney to back up and die off.

I don't have all the answers I need!

It has been a year of a struggle to get answers to my new diagnosis. I have been told by many doctors that there is nothing to be done. I have no answers as to if it is anywhere else that could be this impactful to my health.
