User avatar Hi my name is Brenda I am new to this forum. I have something wrong with me and i don't know what it is.
I had endometriosis removed about 4 years ago but i am not sure if the problem i am having now is related to that or not. My symptoms are:
upset bowels
pain during bowels
bloating of the stomach (i look like i am bout to drop a baby)
relaly bad heartburn now in past 2 days since this started.
almost kinda hurts when i pee but not like a burnin but more like pressure like my bladder is being squeezed.
back pain (lower)
abdominal pain and some pelvic pain (mainly during bowel movements
also my stomach will bloat after sex (don't know if that helps or not)

If anyone can tell me what these might be symptoms of i would greatly appriciate it

User avatar Hi!

When was your last gynecological consult? Have you been tested for recurrence of endometriosis? From the looks of your description, this could be remnants or recurrence of endometriosis. And other possibilities need be ruled out after ruling out this one.

User avatar thanks for replying so quickly Bill.
It has been almost a year i do believe since my last gyn visit, i was having some pelvic pain then but it was not this bad. I have a dr appointment tomorrow, i will let him know all that is goin with me, he also does my pap smears.
Are there any other symptoms I should mention?, that maybe i don't know are symptoms? did that make sense?
