Hello everyone I'm new to this forum and would greatly appreciate any advice or people that have had a similar experience. I'm sorry if it's a bit long winded! I had a lap last May where endo was diagnosed, they removed a 6cm cyst from my left ovary which was bound down with adhesions and adhesions from left large bowel. I had a few bouts of severe pain prior to this surgery but the pain I have now is different and has became pretty constant preventing me from leading a normal life!I have been unable to work for last 4 months and the pain Is completely disabling, it's on my left hip and ovary area and in my left groin and inner thigh so makes it very hard to walk, I used to be such an active person , my life has comp changed, I can't do any straining or lifting , stand for long periods , go for a short walk, and have sex with my husband. Post surgery the pain started to be very severe around my period and ovulating, but I would have a bit of relief in between, I never returned to my normal activity but was able to be fairly active and have sex without severe pain after, but for the last 8 months it's pretty constant. I'm not able to do much at all as it will set of the pain I feel pretty disabled it's really getting me down I can't help but think that this is me now, I went into this surgery a fit and healthy 36 year old and have never been the same since! I'm sorry for the essay!! Tried amitriptyline but that didn't work, I've been on zoladex for 6 weeks now the consultant wants to see if it's live endo causing it which wasn't removed, I have had no relief yet I know it can take 2-3 months to work... Any advice/ knowledge would be greatly apprecciated.. Many thanks in advance 😊
