Bowel Endometriosis & living with a stoma….

I have suffered with bowel problems for as long as I can remember. From the crippling bowel movements to the rectal bleeding. To begin with I was told it was IBS, then I underwent investigations for Crohn’s disease, to then be told during my diagnostic surgery that I suffered with stage 4 Endometriosis which had covered some of my most vital pelvic organs including my bowel. Two weeks later I had to undergo more surgery, but this time it was much more extensive due to needing a bowel resection. At that time I was able to avoid waking up with a stoma bag. I was told the impact the disease had on my bowel was severe and would likely be facing stoma surgery in the future.
