the ramblings of a girl with endometriosis
This blog post has been inspired by one of my favourite endo bloggers Olivia (Who runs Everyday Endo blog.) She challenged some other endo bloggers and myself to write about endometriosis and infertility.
The most asked question I get when talking about endo with people is "Will you be able to have kids?"
It's a bit of an awkward convo to have because all I can really say is "I don't know."
Having endometriosis means you run of the risk of being infertile or having fertility issues. Some ladies have no problem getting pregnant and produce a healthy baby but some struggle and have numerous miscarriages. The thing is, you don't really know until you start trying.
Hello my lovely blog readers and happy new year!
Let's be honest, it seems like 2017 was a bit of a bitch to a lot of us, myself included. It did not go the way I had planned at all and I finished 2017 with the total of 3 surgeries.
I was thinking very negatively of 2017 until I saw an instagram post saying;
"When you look back on the year of 2017, don't think of it as a year of growth. You made it through each day. You should be proud of yourself. You are a better you, despite all the hardships. Take a deep breath and enter 2018 with hope and confidence."
On the 21st of December, I had my third Laparoscopy.
If you have been following my blogs then you would know that this was going to be an excision surgery. This means that my surgeon is going to remove as much of the endometriosis as possible and remove any adhesions. I went into this surgery with a very widespread amount of endo with adhesions holding my bowels, left ovary and abdominal wall all together.
