- Wedding: October 2013
Oh Bees, I will begin this with an apology. I’m sorry that this post is going to be Too Much Information, and filled with angst and frustration. Ughhh….
I have endometriosis. I’ve had endo for 15 years now. There have been changes along the way here and there, but things had been generally status quo for the last couple of years – til now.
I’ve started having bowel symptoms, and it’s making me nuts! I’m so bloated, constipated, nauseated, and there is so much PAIN. I feel like my insides are being yanked around; my back, tailbone, and everything just hurts so much.
My wedding is basically 5 weeks away, and I’m so worried. I’m worried the bloating will be so bad that my dress will look awful. I’m worried that I won’t be able to eat properly, or that I’ll be in too much pain to dance and enjoy myself, and that I will ruin our wedding night and honeymoon by being in too much pain to do anything (including having awesome sex!).
I have an appt with my GP tomorrow, and I’m hoping that she’s going to be able to get me sent asap to a specialist. Earlier this week I did a pico-salax treatment (just to clear everything out) and as soon as I started eating solid food again a couple of days later, everything went back to being horrible.
I’m at my wits’ end, Bees. I don’t know how many others here have endo, or know what I’m dealing with, but I just needed to get this all off my chest. If anyone has any advice, or anything at all, please respond. I’m going nuts.
