Long RAW post: I don’t normally share things like this, but people need to be aware.......
As my head hit the pillow the bright lights from the hospital bed made my vision go blurry. I was nervous, but at the same time I was calm. The nurses and doctors made me feel calm. I thought to myself “Today I was going to get answers” ;well hopefully anyways.
I had an operation, a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into as I didn’t think it would come back with proper results as I’ve had many tests. But to my surprise it did, positive to Endometriosis, I hadn’t done much research on this so I still wasn’t 100% sure what it was. All I know is that the pain that I’ve been in was unbearable.
I woke up after the Op with what felt like 100 people sitting on my chest, and pain up to my neck and shoulders. This is pain like I’ve never felt before, to explain it, it’s like severe cramps from diaphragm up to my shoulders, as my insides were filled with gas for the doctor to remove all of the Endometriosis that was trapped inside of me. Any movement would strain and pull, laughing would hurt, talking would make my breathing shorten. When would this go away? Would I get better? How long does this last? So I did some research, 1/10 Australian Women suffer from Endometriosis, most don’t even know they have it. It is NOT okay, if your period is that bad you miss out on school, your work and other social activities because the pain is that unbearable please get it checked out. Make people aware that Endometriosis is real. Women shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. There is no cure for endometriosis, it cannot be prevented, it just happens. So please do your research and understand what it is. Educate yourself and learn to listen to your body.
