Hi hoping some of you lovely people could advise me on what to do next! My gynocaecolgist doesn't really fill me with confidence! I had months of very heavy periods, chronic pain & mood swings. I tried a variety of pills including tranexamic acid & mefanimic acid with no relief so decided on the depot pro Vera injection which had worked for me years before! Big mistake, my bleeding became constant, the pain worse. I felt sick, light headed & needed to wee constantly. I became very anxious & struggled to live any life! I finally got a scan which showed I had Adenomyosis which my G.P was very dismissive of! I requested a referral to a specialist who initially said it was just heavy periods & there would be no chance of endo being found! He suggested I continued to take codeine 5 times a day! I fought this saying that this was not healthy & went on to explain just how much of my life was being disrupted! He eventually agreed to a laporoscopy & hystocropy. Endometriosis was found & removed! (I'm not sure by which method). He said that there were also 2 fibroids attached to my slightly enlarged womb but they were too small to remove. I bled constantly for a couple of months after surgery & although not as intense was still in pain. The consultant said this was not normal so suggested hormone tablets. I did this for the recommended 3 months but had only 7-10 days a month without any pain. Bleeding was a lot less though. I am now trying to manage without anything but pain is becoming chronic again & bleeding very very heavy even though not constant. After my experience with both the injection & the hormone tablets I am very resistant to trying the coil! I am due to see my consultant again very soon & know he is going to suggest an ablation. Does anyone have any thoughts? Will an ablation manage pain as well as the bleeding? Are they successful generally? Are there any other options? I cannot carry on like this!! Please help me! Thanks in advance!
