I'm new to this forum but as I'm currently off work thought it may help. I was diagnosed with endometriosis 9 years ago by laparoscopy and had laser treatment and hormone treatment for 6 months after surgery and the symptoms were much much better . I have since had a daughter who is now 3 and symptoms have got worse and worse since having her to the point that I have worse symptoms now than when I was first diagnosed. I saw a consultant last week who has said I need to have another laparoscopy done to have a look as I'm now not only getting very bad pelvic pain bowel pain I'm also getting pain in my hip and down my thigh which sometimes is unbearable. I'm due to go on holiday end of May so it was decided for me to have surgery when I get back . He has advised me to stop hormone pill to reduce risks of surgery but since I have stopped that I have been off work since last weds due to the pain that I am in . Not sure what to do for the best ! Shall I start taking the pill again as the pain is now much worse ?
