What Is Endometriosis? 

Endometriosis is a medical condition which primarily affects women of the reproductive age. The condition occurs when the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus grows on the outside of the uterus. The tissue can often be found on the ovaries or the fallopian tubes and it can cause significant pain and inflammation for patients. 

 

What Are The Symptoms Of Endometriosis? 

If a patient has endometriosis, they may experience some of the following common symptoms, however the symptoms of endometriosis can vary and some women may be badly affected, while others will have very little noticeable symptoms. 

The NHS outline that the most common symptoms include: 

  • Pain in your lower tummy or back, this can be worse during your period 
  • Period pain that can stop you from doing normal activities 
  • Pain when you go to the toilet during your period 
  • Feeling sick during your period 
  • Getting constipation or diarrhoea during your period 
  • Heavy periods 
  • Pain during or after sex 
  • Experiencing difficulty getting pregnant 

Endometriosis can have a huge impact on a patient’s life and it may also lead to depression. 

 

Why Is Endometriosis Often Misdiagnosed? 

Endometriosis can be extremely difficult to diagnose and it can take around eight years to get a diagnosis. Due to the large amount of similar symptoms, endometriosis can often my mistaken for another condition such as: 

  • Painful periods 
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease 
  • Ovarian cysts 
  • Ovarian or uterine cancer 

The delayed and missed diagnosis of endometriosis can have serious impacts on the physical health of a patient and it can also have significant impacts on their mental health. If your endometriosis diagnosis was delayed and this has led to further complications, you may be able to claim for compensation.

    Robert's Story

    "You couldn’t ask for a better team"

    After his symptoms were misdiagnosed, Robert suffered a stroke affecting the left side of his body. He was in hospital for five weeks and had to attend physiotherapy for six months as part of his recovery.

    Our team secured a substantial compensation, which took into consideration the physical and mental impact of Robert’s misdiagnosis on him and his family.

    This enabled Robert’s wife to give up work as well as buy a bungalow together, making it easier for Robert, with his mobility problems. Robert is looking forward to going back to the music concerts and car shows he used to enjoy, as well as spending more time with family.
