hi there my name is Laura and for the last 4 years have been experiancing terrible pain to the left side
here is my symptoms
leg pain on same side
i will try and keep my story as short as poss!
this is what has been happeneing over the last 2 years
I was scanned and nothing has shown up, also ultrasound, i had a laproscopy which showed up cysts which were then drained, no sign of endo, for 4 months or so after the cysts were drained i had less pain.
whats happening now is ; in july the doc started me on a injection called lupron, which suppreses the ovaries and stps them working, this was for diagnostc purposes so they could check that the pain was definatly coming from the ovaries, (which i knew it was!) its 3 injections, 1 each month,, the last 4 weeks have been hell!! with all the side effects from the depot, hot flushes, menopausel, headaches, deppressed,, anyway i was due to go in today to have the last one, but couldnt bear for them to inject me again with this, i must say that my pain improved by 70% but i wanted the side effects to stop,.
When i initially agreed to having these injections the plan was, after 3 months to have another laproscopy and take a look at what is going on, so today i was seen by a different consultant and he suggested continuing with the injections for 6 months but have hrt to help with the side effects,,
I am totally confused now,, i told them i didnt want the injection today (just couldnt face feeling like crap still) and i would have a think about it, they have booked me back in next week ,,
it does greatly help with the pain but im really scared to have it again, even with the hrt,, the reason i am posting this on here is that i have read that this is a good treament for endo?
I have thought all along i have endo , and this has made me think i definatly do now.
also the other thing that confused me was, the doc said about removing the ovary but said both would be removed? i asked why he would take away a healthy ovary and he just sort of shrugged!!
please help advice needed thanks xx
