Hi, I have been suffering from Endo from the past 4 years, I had a big bowel obstruction I had Endo inside my bowels,

I had partial hysterectomy, keyhole op. I have been on antibiotics 4 times due to urine infection. In pain all the time, back stomach hurts a lot. Has anyone tried Mefenamic Acid tablets? Want to know if they work. My GP says they will get rid of Endo.

I used to take codeine, I took morphine and other really strong painkillers nothing helps after a few weeks. I have been given a TENs machine it helps in someway but it doesn't hit the spot where I really need it, my bladder. Have you tried the TENs machine? Can I also ask what you eat during the day on a daily basis, if you don't mind?

I eat a illite cereal and coffee for breakfast, for lunch it's either homemade soup or energy drink, for dinner soup or nothing.

I used Psyllium Husks, (health food shops, Holland and Barrett etc) it carries water through the bowel, I take it religiously every day and it has literally changed my life. It has not improved the endo but it has improved my bowel motions to a nice regular pattern. I used to go 7 days at a time with out going, but this stuff is a natural fibre, no chemicals or mass bowel evacuations like some things!!! I recommend it to everyone, research it, see if its for you x

Thank you for that, I will go to Holland and Barrett shop and buy it, hopefully it will help me.

Please don't take the Mefenamic Acid tablets as they have something in them that aggravates endometriosis and makes your pain worse.

Hi, thank you for that info, I was wondering when the Mefenamic would kick in. I will stop taking them as they have not helped me at all.
