I'm posting as had a horrible night and still in pain now as I sit on the sofa and type this, and I know you will understand.
I had my lap 10 days ago, to check for suspected endo and adeno. Dr said he couldn't find endo but did suspect I had adeno. My womb is larger than normal and along with my pains I probably do. Also said that all my pains in pelvis, down legs, hips, lower back and even up my back, along with those in pubic area, pains underneath I get are due to the bulky bowel he found in lap. So basically all these pains are my IBS and to look at my diet and antispasmodics. I declined a mirena to be put at time of lap due to all the bad stories and tbh I don't need any other symptoms on top of those I have.
So I've been taking my peppermint oil tablets, also now have probotic a tablets and magnesium tablets to help which my homeopath suggested. I've cut wheat out (known trigger of my IBS) and I'm cutting back on sugar and dairy.
Some of the stomach pains could well be IBS, as this is what I've had before but after a while it goes once been to toilet or wind out. But not convinced on the rest.
I guess that the rest of the pains I get are due to the adeno. I'm taking my pill 3 packs straight and going to do all the above for at least a month and see if any difference. Body will have healed from lap by then too. If no difference back to dr.
Guessing I might have to try other forms of hormones but the only symptom I don't get it heavy bleeding. I only get it on the pill break and although it's heavier than pre children, it's only a few days of being heavier, although I do spot for whole week so wear panty liners, for the rest of the week off.
Fed up of pain. Think I'm going to have to go back sooner to the dr and get some pain relief that helps. Taking co codamol but only those you can by at pharmacist, so I either need the prescription strength ones or something else.
Anyway rant over!
