Hi there my names Natalie and I've suffered from endo for about 5 years, I had three laps diagnostic and treatment between the ages of 18-20 after my last op at the age of 20 I had 2 years symptom free! At the end of last year however my endo returned with a bang serious pain in my abdomen, persistent heavy bleeding, pain when I emptied my bladder, blood in my stools you name it I had it! Went in for my diagnostic lap on 4/2/14 which they found lots of endo spots, adhesions and cysts! The most serious was that my uretera tube was covered in endo and was actually closing up as a result. I have to have a second treatment lap to have a cystoscopy and stents inserted into my uretera tube as well as the removal of cysts and endo. After the diagnostic lap I have been in agony, can't pass urine properly, can't sleep I'm in so much pain and am now on OxyContin as a result which still is doing nothing!! I'm still waiting on an appt for my op but I'm just at the end of my tether and I really don't no what else I can do to help myself?? Using hot water bottles but now have mottling of the skin and blisters, just don't no what to do!!! Any advise from anyone about what I can do would be really helpful? Natalie x
