Endometriosis is a nightmare for me. I suffered from it since my teen years BUT never for once that I thought it would be that serious. Most of my classmates have the same pain and so I thought it is so "normal" till it escalated to me trying to get painkillers (ponstan to synflex) from different doctors. Panadol menstrual did not help either so I have to resort to those painkillers to numb the pain. It was only when I went to the polyclinic during one visit that the doctor suggested that I should actually seek help then continuing taking painkiller. So finally, I decide to seek help after getting a referral and how shock I was when I was diagnosed at 29yo with endometriosis at kkh. Then the discovery of the cyst was like 5cm but within months it grew too huge till I was suggest surgery aka laparoscopy. Ended up, I decided to seek a 2nd opinion at Thomson Medical and to my alarm instead of one cyst now, I actually got two which was quite huge that the doctor I saw at ThomsonMedical was worry it would ruptured. I did my surgery in Oct 2015, they discover that my endometriosis has spread to my pelvic, intestine and return. I was like omg is this a bad dream? As mine was pretty quite serious, I only went back to work in dec 2015 after my surgery in October. The anesthesiologist commended that I was still single and young too and to have this was really too harsh. Even after the surgery, I was put on Depo-Provera- a jab for 6 months and then Visanne which I am taking till now. I was hopeful that Visanne worked for me for quite a while so I decide to stop the medication for just 1 month and switch to another medication and to my horror my endometriosis has come back once again. Seemed like my battle with endometriosis will be a long one and I must be on Visanne till I get marry and decide to have kids.
