Read Shereen’s Endo Story below…
Finally, I decided to stick to one doc who sent me to do an xray which revealed that I had a cyst growing on my left ovary, but ironically I was feeling pains mostly in my right pelvic area.
I had surgery to remove that cyst and was placed on Lupron depot (the injection) for six months. I however noticed that I was still having those excrutiating pains even after surgery and treatment, so I kept going back to the gynae who told me that I might have endometriosis, but she didn’t even recommended that I had a laparoscopy test done to confirm her theory.
All of this happened between 2001 and 2004.
I literally gave up, until a cousin of mine told me to try the gynae clinic at UWI, which I did. I was sent to do the laparoscopy test and that was when it was revealed that I had stage 4 Endo and needed to do surgery.
