After years of being in pain and constant visits to my doctors I have finally been told that I may have edometriosis, althought no explaination what it was etc and some things you read on the internet just scare me more. Was refered for an ultra sound which as I thought came back clear. My doctor now wants me to have a laporoscomy but I have to see the gynacologist first (been waiting 6 weeks for an appointment and heard nothing). I am getting fed up waiting and of having to take painkillers constantly every 4 hours. Does anyone have any tips on how I can ease the pain to get me through until i see the specialists and hopefully get some answers?
