Read Shelby’s Endo Story below…
I wanted to have a child and my best option was to go in and try this out. I had a diagnostic laparoscopy done December 30th, 2010. My doctor said that I should be able to conceive in 6-9 months. 25 days later I married my husband! In April I started to hurt very bad and was coming up on my check up time any way, so I set up an appointment to see my doctor again. She made me take a pregnancy test and it was positive!! Turns out that I was 3 months post surgery and 2 months pregnant! It worked! I was so relieved and sure that the surgery had completely fixed me and there was nothing to worry about again. Everything was good after I had my daughter! About 6-9 months later I began to hurt again. I thought to myself, “great! No insurance anymore, and no way to see a doctor!” My daughter is now almost 2 and I still have yet to see a doctor 🙁 I do know that before my surgery I was a stage 2 and now I feel much worse than I ever had. I feel it everywhere. Not only is this affecting me physically, its beginning to affect me mentally 🙁
One day I will be endo free and maybe even have another addition to my family. Until then here’s to better painless times!
