While I can’t speak highly enough of the hospital staff that I encountered (surgeons, nurses and all staff alike), I could see myself slipping down their list of priorities once I was not in immediate need of attention.
My surgery in Birmingham was life-changing. I finally got my endometriosis diagnosis after ten years of suffering, but it came at a great cost both financially and emotionally. Recovering so far away from home and not having my family around me was tough.
Everyone loves a hot water bottle, but none more than those living with endometriosis and adenomyosis! Show your love on your sleeve, lapel, hat, bag!
I am one of the lucky ones…well at least that if I have endometriosis at all as I am, as yet, undiagnosed.. when I say I am lucky I mean that I got my period aged 11 and had them perfectly normally like clockwork every 28 days aside from one random agonising one age 24 that had me rolling around in pain.
