Really hope you can help me. I had a lap back in April which diagnosed stage 4 endo, as I had a chocolate cyst. Since then, I have been symptom free, as have been tri-cycling the pill. Until about two weeks ago that is, when I had my second period since the op. The period itself was ok, but since then I've had moderate menstrual cramps (with no bleeding), mild nausea, and back, neck, and arm ache.
I'm very aware that my symptoms are not as many as many of you on here - I am not in terrible pain, I can go to work, etc etc (although I did have to spend Saturday in bed with flu-like symptoms). But I'm just wondering, is feeling a bit rubbish just my daily life now, and do I just have to accept it? Do you think I have another large cyst (today, my back ache is on the left side, which is a new thing), or are these just classic symptoms of endo - cyst or no cyst? I hate being at the mercy of it. I've got a holiday booked in November which I'm already really worried about. Is anyone on medication that has really helped with these symptoms? The pill clearly isn't working for me any more.
Any thoughts/suggestions/advice MUCH appreciated. I know no one with this disease and feel so in the dark. My GP is useless and it will be weeks or even months before I can see the consultant again. Thanks.
