I just would like to add a question based on the same question. Has anyone (diagnosed) with endometriosis ever had a ultrasound or sono that showed "fluid" around the uterus? In the process of trying to find out what was wrong with me two separate gyno's found this. The first decided to go in for a laproscopy and found my appendix was ruptured and oozing (her words), we really thought that was where all of the pain came from. Of course by my next period I was in severe pain again and sick as a dog. Months later I ended up at another gyno and had the same scan and found the same fluid, she did not seem concerned enough to do a laproscopy, instead she sent me to my current GI who has been treating me for Crohn's since May 07. I am up to 100mg of Imuran 4000mg Sulfasalazine and can't get down passed 20mg of Prednisone. Ever month like clockwork, 1 week before my period I am back in pain and sick again. This month has been worse, as if I am not on the meds again. I was thinking (after reading this posting) maybe I should consider asking for a laproscopy w/ both doctors involved to see what kind of alien is taking over my abdomen. I havent been able to really eat much since Wednesday (I actually went 2 days with no food) it just hurts. I see my doctor tomorrow. So please reply soon. I know he will want to change my meds or add more, I really hate to do that. Did I mention I hate taking meds?!
I wonder about
Crohn's and Endometriosis being somewhat attached because there are so many women on this site with both. What is the deal, like women don't have enough problems already.?
I am sorry someone else is having to go through it. It is not fun!
