Just a very brief post to apologise that I won’t be able to publish a full blog post today. I’ve had big work thing (a court hearing in a long-running case) and the stress and physical requirements have just wiped me out, so I’m not able to sit at my computer long enough to type out a post. Normal service will resume tomorrow with Reframing Part III: Body Image.
That’s the apology, now for the update: you may remember that I have previously mentioned an exciting type of surgery called Total Pelvic Peritoneal Excision. Well, I’ve had a Skype consult with Dr Edi-Osagie, the only surgeon I know of who is currently performing it. We’re going to do a drug trial to determine whether my pain is nerve-related or active endometriosis. If it is active endo, he will operate! I will continue to let you know how it goes.
I must say that Dr Edi-Osagie’s approach was thorough, gentle, and attentive. I actually felt listened to, and, for the first time in my endo experience, like I had a voice in determining my treatment plan. It is a new and heady sensation!

Was your TTPE surgery successful for you?
It does seem to have been successful in dealing with the endometriosis. Unfortunately, we discovered I also have Adenomyosis, which can’t be treated by excision, so I am not entirely free of symptoms.
