For over 10 years now endometriosis has impacted my health and well-being. On the 22nd February 2021, I had my third laparoscopy for the condition. In 2018 I had two within 6 months, I was in hospital for 6 days after the second, so I was daunted by the prospect of having to do it all again during a pandemic. With no visitors allowed and social distancing measures meaning you aren’t able to interact as easily, I questioned whether I had the strength to mentally pull myself through this ordeal again.
