As you might have already seen if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I finally got my date through on Friday for my operation!

I will be having laser and adesiology via keyhole surgery on 8th January 2013. It's the same as my surgery that I had in 2007 (which didn't work!) but at the moment anything is better than the situation I'm in now.

I burst in to tears moments after reading the letter... I am just so relieved! I finally have something to work towards and I know it might be wrong to pin all my hopes on it but I'm just praying that after I've recovered, I'll be able to get back to work and get moved out with Danny finally.

2012 might have been a wasted year but I'm determined that this surgery will get me my life back and make 2013 a year of new beginnings.



  1. I think the above is a spam comment! :(

    Anyway Shireen, I'm so happy that you have a date for surgery and a goal to work towards. I'm here if you need to talk about anything!

  2. Hi, I have been reading your blog, have you considered going to an endometriosis specialist? They will not laser your endo but remove it by excision, which is the best method to get rid of pain. Andrew pickersgill, trained with Dr. Redwine in the USA. Also Dr. Trehan does radical exclusion w good results.

    1. Yes - considered a lot! Unfortunately I cannot afford it so have to stick with the NHS. Dr. Trehan would charge me £12,700 for the laparoscopy, excision surgery and consultations... Not sure who has that type of money let alone someone who cannot work from the disease! :(

  3. Mr pickersgill sees nhs patients still

  4. I hope you gind relief soon.Please consider seeing Dr. Pickersgill at least for a consult. Lasering the endo could make your pain worse, and if Dr. Pickergill still sees nhs patients it is worth a shot.I am sorry you have so much pain. All the best :)
