I'll try to keep it brief. After a horrendous 5 years of pelvic pain and many more years before that of horrendous periods along with every other symptom endo comes with. Also after years of being mis diagnosed and ignored! I was finally diagnosed by lap op last November with severe stage 4 endo and frozen pelvis. The 6 months after the diagnosis were the worst of my life. I was so poorly with the endo and the injections they tried me on made me worse. Eventually in May they did the big op to remove the endo. I had a specialist surgeon and colo rectal surgeon operate and they say they removed it all. I had a few rocky weeks after the op recovering and had an infection but after about 6 weeks I felt fantastic. The best I've felt in years. Finally I had my life back. No pain, no pain relief needed. My first period was a breeze! I have been taking the pill loestrin 20 before and since the op but only having a 7 day break every 3 months. So all was great and we had a 2 week holiday to the carribean at beginning of august. No problems at all. Until....... Last Sunday night I felt like I had a trapped nerve like feeling in the same place in my pelvis where I always got the pain before. I didn't worry at first and thought it would pass but it hasn't. It's got worse each day since. Tried paracetamol and ibuprofen but doesn't help. Reached for the naproxen today but that's not helped either. I'm now in a lot of pain in the pelvis and right hip and lying on the sofa. I feel like I did back before the bloody operation!! Surely it's not been able to grow back in the space of 3 months!! That just seems ridiculous. I can't be bothered to call the doctor as all they do is give pain relief and I have that at home plus my GP who knew my whole history has now retired. I see my surgeon for my next check up in November. I can prob contact him before then if needs be but don't want to do that just yet as it's only been a week of pain. I am keeping a pain diary though. Any advice or suggestions? Anyone think it could be my endo returned? Or do you think not. I just don't know what to think. I really don't want to end up back on things like Tramadol and oromorph
