I was diagnosed with Endo when I was 16, I am now 41 and still having problems. Have had 5 laparoscopy ops, the last one being 10 years ago. While under the anesthetic last time they put in a Myrena Coil which completely cleared up the pain. This lasted for 6 years and was great, forgot all about having the Endo. I had the coil removed 6 years ago and the pain has started returning. I have been in constant agony for 6 whole weeks, not even one day pain free. The pain is so harsh that my legs are numb and and i spend a lot of time curled up in a ball. Saw my GP who has referred me back to Gyni and is recommending a Hysterectomy. I really hope this works once and for all. So to all you out there I share your pain and frustration. It is a debilitating disease that a lot of people think is just a bit of period pain, take an ibuprofen and you'll be ok., NO ITS NOT. so keep your opinions to yourself, I'm not doing this to get attention. It HURTS!. Best Wishes to all you fellow sufferers.
