I had the coil fitted during my second laparoscopy and I was just wondering if it's actually worked for anyone. I've been through most treatments, including a chemical menopause, and all of which failed. During my lap they removed some of the endo but had to leave a big chunk on my bowel, which may need further surgery with a specialist bowel surgeon and a gynae. I just think it's pretty damn laughable to say oh the coil may help when far more hardcore treatments have failed and frankly I'm sick and tired off this now. I've been in pain for three years and I just want the damn surgery but I still have to jump through their damn hoops. And, to make things even more fun I've got my period due in a few days as I'm coming off the pill for good. Three weeks after surgery. I know for many women the coil can cause heavier periods too and I'm genuinely wondering why they insisted on fitting it. A private gynae I saw said there's no real proof that the coil helps endo at all. I'm just very tired of fighting. Please help me.
