Great to hear from you Jen , I'm sorry to hear your not doing good with the mirena causing you depression it all sucks , has your pain settled ? I'm doing really crap ATM I'm in constant pain daily & feeling really depressed with this & really angry that I'm still waiting on my appt since Nov my GP told me yesterday that there is a 10month + waiting time it is just ridiculous that we have suffer so much & wait so long ( my GP has increased my meds & am now on morphine patches which is still not helping !! I'm at my wits end & living a life of a total recluse !!! Xx

Pain isn't too bad but it depends how much I do yes waiting time is getting worse and now they wont do non emergency operations ethier cos of more budget cuts so I'm lucky I got my operation when I did. Over ten years I was waiting you just have to keep at them and keep fighting that's why I started using herbs for pain relief cos the doctors wouldn't help me so I decided to help myself. Have you tried a tens machine?its said to be good pain relied xx
