I am new to this support group and could use a little kick in the fanny. I was diagnosed with endometriosis back in 1992. Prior to that time I had one of my ovaries removed due to an infection that had developed after childbirth. In 92' the doctor performed a laporoscopy, I believe they used a laser to remove a cyst and endometriosis. This seemed to work for awhile, but it was not long after that I began to experience symptoms typical of endometriosis. Well, I have lived with those symptoms for some 16 years now, without seeing a doctor for the pain. My symptoms as of late have been far more troubling than before and I really need to see the doctor. I am in constant pain. I have pain with intercourse and abnormal vaginal bleeding, back pain, bloating, positional pain and just about every other symptom associated with endo (an exaggeration I'm sure). Thing is, I have been reading about my symptoms on the internet and they seem to match with ovarian cancer as well. This has made me so frightened that I just suffer through the pain in fear of going to the doctor. Has anyone else had this kind of fear?
