I have been on Prostap 3 injections for the last year or so, Kliofem to help with the side effects and was put onto an anti-depressant to help with the manic ups and downs of my hormones. Things were good and pain was reduced immensely - after my 2nd laparoscopy in 2011 I had little pain relief and my consultant decided on this line of attack. All going good after bad pain for 10 years...so good I felt I could finally move to Australia (I'm originally from Northern Ireland).
But low and behold I have been told the drug named Prostap 3 does not exist and the substitute injections that performs the exact same thing are only used for treating people with tumours. The doc could not prescribe it for me as it was not for endo sufferers, and basically was only allowed for people with cancer
Is there anyone can help me with this? The thought of going back to that level of pain is horrifying me...to the point I am considering returning home to continue with my injections. Every time I think I'm onto a winner endo raises its ugly head again and it controls my life again. I hate it.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am getting nowhere searching the web. At my wit's end.
Thanks for listening
