Dear AbbieRowbotham94,

I am sorry to hear of your plight and I thought I would send you some information that might be of use.

There is some pain management information via the following links, in particular from page 8 onwards of the endometriosis treatment options pack:



You mention you are now having trouble with urinary issues and these links could speak to that:




I read into the latter part of your post that you are feeling low and no one should feel this way, losing your friends etc. Perhaps you might benefit from some support that Endometriosis UK can offer you:

Endometriosis UK offer support options run by trained volunteers that have been touched by endometriosis themselves. They include face-to-face support groups usually run once a month and are countrywide:-


Online support groups are available for those people who are unable to find a support group in their area or who prefer not to attend a face-to-face meeting. They do not use webcams to maintain anonymity. Again, they are usually run monthly and the next one is 2nd March at 8pm:-


Furthermore, there is a freephone helpline where you can speak in complete confidence:-

0808 808 2227

I hope this helps and I wish you well.

Take care,

Simonetta, Endometriosis UK
