I had emergency lap 14/12/2014 & found endo. Nothing was done to treat the endo but I was booked for appointment with a gyne consultant. I have been back to my GP about 5 times because I need something stronger then the paracetamol & ibuprofen. I was given Tramadol. I then had my period on 13/01/2015 which I am still on, now lasting 23 days & counting. It doesnt seem to be letting up & Im assuming the pain is continuing because I am still bleeding. I keep having flare up especially when I eat have nausea. GP told me to continue with Tramadol, wait for gyne appointment & they will help with everything.
After a 6 week wait I finally saw gyne & he as put me on the 18week waiting list for my 2nd lap to remove any endo or whatever needs doing. He didnt ask me about my symptoms & whats been going on, nor advise me what to do in the meantime, if there was any other meds to help with the current bleed or diet for flare ups or have to help in anyway etc. All he did was book in the next lap. I had to then go back to my GP to see if they could help further the day after my consultation.
Again was told to continue Tramadol, let this period run its course as its the 1st one I have had since coming off the Depo 14/11/2014. My sicknote is for another month, in hope the period would stop & the pain & nausea would ease. I am so sick of the nausea & 'spaceiness' of taking Tramadol & worried this period will continue so long that I will be relieved of my job before I can get bck on my feet. Im sure if I wasnt on a period, the pain would be manageable & I could go back to work.
My issue here is that I am still in the same pain I was admitted for emergency surgery in the 1st place. From experience have any of you suffered the same. Has anyone experienced such little help as i have & can anyone advise if there is anything to help with this bleed. I just dont know what to do for the best. Can anyone shed some light in anyway please.
