So I went to my appointment yesterday but didnt really understand what the Gyne was trying to explain. I had my lap to remove deep infiltrating endo from US Ligs and POD at the start of Sept. Been in waaaay worse pain since, constant, sharp, painkillers dont work etc. Finally got to see a different gyne yesterday and he thought it was nerve pain? But NOT nerve damage from Lap. Something about the nerves are used to firing and need to calm them down? cant really get my head round it? Has removing the Endo exposed the nerves?? Or have to nerves been cut? I dont understand!
He is putting me on Nortriptyline to calm the nerves down. Has anyone else had this? Does it work? what side effects does it give you?
He says if this doesnt work then maybe another Lap, but need to give it a good try first
Im off to America 22nd Jan to go snowboarding until May. I AM DEF going this time, I have already had to cancel so many snowboard plans this season due to all the pain. But I am a bit worried about snowboarding on these new drugs. Will I be ok??
A million questions, sorry!!! I hope you are all ok. Im so grateful that I found this site, it really is my lifeline at the moment! x x x
