I know exactly what you mean! I had endometriosis for years that went undiagnosed, so your joy at having surgery is familiar to me. Your fears and worries about finding nothing are very valid. I was told for years that nothing was wrong with me and it was all in my head. Like you can force your cycle into abnormality simply by wishing it.
Just a word of caution for you. Take care of yourself and understand the possibilities and process of a treatment before undergoing it, please! My laparoscopic surgery history is extensive simply from the nature of my illness. Adhesions formed from the endometriosis, surgeries, and infection and are causing my pain, IBS, and vomiting/fainting issues.
My prayers go out to you for a successful, informative surgery that gives a clear diagnosis and much hope for effective treatment.
Keep us posted on the outcome! I hope the waiting for surgery passes quickly.
The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. George Bernard Shaw
