Hi I'm sorry you're feeling so bad hun, I've not got much time so this will be quick but msg me if you want to chat. First of all I know exactly what you're going through regards looking after a baby when in intense pain. It's not only heartbreaking but I also felt extremely panicky that something bad would happen when I was on my own with my baby. No one can understand unless it's happened to them! I used to think I was a useless unsafe mum due to Endo but now I know I'm one of the stongest. I had radical excision 4.5 weeks ago and am still in a lot of pain some days. What exactly did you have done? A lovely lady on here told me to keep in mind that the areas that have been treated are raw and the pain can feel just as bad if not worse as you are healing. It can take up to 6 months for your insides to heal plus the added normal hormonal fluctuations which cause inflammation in 'normal' women we also have to deal with this when we are healing. I know it can feel like there's no hope and I'm battling these feelings right now. A lady who helped me told me she was convinced the treatment hadn't worked up to 3 months after and now she's at the gym 4x a week. Try and keep the faith. If you need a rant or have any questions just message me xxx
