ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I got my appendix removed in September 2014. I had already been dealing with debilitating symptoms for at least 5 years at that point. I went through medication therapy and even had surgery to remove endometriosis and adhesions from the outside of my bladder, intestines, and female organs in November 2017. It then got worse because I started vomiting so bad I could no longer hold a job. In March 2019, I decided I had enough. I went to the hospital because I was severely dehydrated and lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time due to the vomiting. Lucky I got them to do an emergency colonoscopy in which they found a blockage and could not go any fruther even with a baby scope. I had a colonoscopy 3 years prior that showed the endometriosis on the inside of my intestines, but it wasn't blocking anything and for some reason my doctors seemed hesitant about doing another one. Anyway, a few days later, I went to surgery and they had to remove 2 sections of my intestines due to 3 rare blockages of endometriosis (I allowed a case study on this). I have recovered from that well, but now I am still having unexplained upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and now my bloodwork is showing increased liver enzymes, high WBCs, and atypical lymphocytosis. Ultrasound of upper abdomen is showing possible fatty liver. I also still have symptoms of IBS, overall weakness, low potassium (I have had to take potassium on and off over the past several years), unexplained weight loss, and some other symptoms. I was also told recently that I will not be able to get pregnant naturally due to high chance of tubal pregnancy and low chance of the egg being able to make it to my uterus. I was also told my tubes were swollen and eventually I will have to have surgery to remove them. I also have another story about how I managed my Autism I posted to the Facebook page. I would like my story to be heard because endometriosis is so hard to diagnose. I believe doctors, especially general surgeons, need more education and training on how to handle endometriosis. I also would like help if possible to find an Endometriosis Specialist to do excision surgery so I can possibly have some sort of quality to my life and possibly be able to have kids naturally. Also, I would like my story on Autism to get out there to help more with early diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for considering me.
