What are the complications of endometriosis?
Studies report endo-related complications in 90% of patients with bowel and bladder issues being the most common complications. What complications have others seen or experienced with endometriosis?
Daily pain, severely painful periods, headaches on my period, bloating, lower back pain, leg pain, infertility, pain in my upper abdomen around the ribcage, pain laying on my stomach or any pressure on my stomach or using my abdominal muscles, also frequent needing to urinate – all due to large endometriomas stuck to the back of my uterus. Nausea if I bend over a few times (to empty the dishwasher or something). Sometimes painful bowel movements. Painful sex.
Pre excision? Infertility, bowel obstruction, bladder and kidney issues, blocked ureters/hydronephrosis, sciatic pain, thigh pain, back pain, pain around rib cage, abdominal pain, shoulder pain, ruined appendix, migraines, fatigue, PMS, heavy and very painful periods.
Post-abdominal-excision? Pelvic floor issues, infertility, thoracic endo issues: shoulder pain, rib cage pain, upper back pain, some migraine and fatigue (not as bad as before)
