Share Your Story: CS

CS was diagnosed with Endometriosis when she was 34.  Now a year later, she shares the story of her diagnosis with us.

CS’s Journey:  I didn’t think I could have endometriosis because I didn’t have bad menstrual cramps or heavy bleeding. What I did have, were bouts of pretty severe-left-sided pelvic pain. I first started noticing it a few months after I had my child, and I don’t think I have to tell you that I was repeatedly misdiagnosed.

Eventually, an ultrasound just happened to spot an endometrioma on my left ovary. I had exploratory surgery, during which my surgeon removed the endometrioma – and found endo also growing on my ureter, sigmoid colon, and so forth. I’m feeling better since the surgery, with much reduced pain. Now I have to decide what I want to do next with my treatment

Words of Advice:  I guess, don’t rule out endometriosis just because your periods aren’t bad. It can still be hiding in there.

I want to send a special Thank You out to CS for being brave enough to share her personal story, struggle, and victories with us today.  Thank you for sharing your Journey!!!  Hoping it helps others going through similar issues.
