SENSITIVE DOCUMENTARY ON BBC ALBA LIFTS THE LID ON ENDOMETRIOSIS
With endometriosis awareness week running from March 7th-14th, BBC ALBA brings viewers an intimate and sensitive documentary on this condition which is little known despite affecting 1.5million – 1 in 10 women of reproductive age – in the UK.
Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue behaving like the lining of the womb is located outside it. This can cause heavy periods, pelvic pain, depression and fertility problems and make everyday life a struggle. The average time from first seeing a doctor to firm diagnosis is 7.5 years. Currently the only definitive way to diagnose endometriosis is by laparoscopy – keyhole surgery.
BBC ALBA’s Trusadh documentary ‘An Cràdh/Endo What?’ shares intimate and personal battles with Endometriosis from women across the country. The documentary also hears from specialists from the EXPPECT Endometriosis Service in Edinburgh and others seeking to raise awareness of the condition.
Kirsty MacDonald, who lives in Edinburgh has suffered severe monthly stomach cramps since her teens. However, she wasn’t diagnosed with endometriosis until she was 30. In 2015, aged 36, Kirsty decided to take a radical step which gave a good chance but no guarantees that her symptoms would not return. In January 2015 she underwent a hysterectomy, with her journey being followed throughout the programme.
For Kirsty the operation was a last resort to deal with severe symptoms which had worsened over the years. She says, in the programme: “I don’t know how I will feel mentally afterwards. I don’t know how I will feel physically afterwards. But I feel I have no other choice at this stage.”
Shona MacLellan, 32, from South Uist, has taken a holistic approach to cope with her endometriosis. She uses regular yoga and careful diet control to try to manage her symptoms, which include pelvic pain and fatigue.
She says: "I got diagnosed with Endo in 2010 after I had an operation to remove a cyst that had been caused by endometriosis. It was very debilitating and there were days when I couldn't even get out of bed. If it wasn’t for that operation, I still wouldn’t know that I had endometriosis. More awareness of the symptoms is needed and also how to manage the pain and fatigue involved. I’m lucky, I only have a mild form of it, others are not so lucky.”
Produced for BBC ALBA by MacTV, Trusadh: ‘An Cràdh/Endo What?’ will be broadcast on Monday 7 March at 9pm.
Tha Endometriosis a’ toirt buaidh air 1.5 millean no 10% de bhoireannaich ann am Breatainn. ‘S e a th’ ann ach nuair a tha lìnigeadh broinn boireannaich a’ fàs ann an àitichean eile. Dh’fhaodadh pian miosail uabhasach, trom-inntinn, agus duilgheadasan clann a ‘ghiùlain a bhi na chois. Dha na boireannaich air a bheil seo, tha e a’ ciallachadh strì agus iomadh dùbhlan làitheil.
Tha Curstaidh NicDhòmhnaill air a bhith a’ fulang le pian uabhasach gach mìos bhon a bha i na deugaire. Ach cha deach dèanadh a-mach gur e endometriosis a bh’ oirre gus an robh i 30. Ann an 2015 aig 36 co-dhùin Curstaidh ceum bunasach a ghabhail. Ged nach robh cinnt idir gun tigeadh piseach air cùisean, chaidh innse dhith gun robh cothrom de 60% gun cuireadh obair-lannsa às dha na bha i a’ fulang. Anns an Fhaoilleach fhuair i hysterectomy agus lean Trusadh i tro gach ceum.
Cluinnidh sinn cuideachd ri boireannaich eile a tha a’ strì le Endometriosis, nam measg cuid a tha a’ coinneachadh airson taic a thoirt dha càch a chèile agus aire a thogail dha Endometriosis.
