  • Hi, I'm sure you're already doing this but lower back/hip heat packs during the day and hot water bottles at night are helping me a lot with the same thing, it doesn't take away the pain but I feel it definitely dulls the aching - along with painkillers. good luck with your appointment in Sept.

  • Yeah that's what I have been doing helps alot also been having warm baths and taking my painkillers but only seem to take the edge of the pain im going to go back to doctors and ask if I can be seen quicker than September but know what gynaecology are like always make you wait ill let u no how I get on and thanks for your reply xx

  • Hi - if you had adhesions joining your bowel to your uterus this is likely to have been in a place called the Pouch of Douglas. Can you click on my name and read my post on it to see what you identify with and the one on how to find a specialist centre. Rectovaginal endo should be dealt with by specialists and not in general gynaecology. Removing just the adhesions isn't a thorough treatment unless all endo is excised too and you might have it in deeper areas than can be seen at a lap. You need to get yourself clued up on endo so you can drive the treatment plan from now on. I suggest you get a copy of the surgical report from your GP to find out exactly what was found and done. Can you pm me when you get it. x

  • Thanks lindie I will do and let you know what the doctor says
