Hello, I have had endo since the age of 14, ten years.
I am a sports therapist (same as a physio but sports and diet specialised) For a long time when the pain got really bad i never exercised because as you guys might know you feel heavy, painful, tired... just dont want to move really....I have played rugby, tennis, ran.... for year but when it gets back i just can't do anything. I had a lap 5 weeks ago and since then i have been on a clean eating diet, so no more chocolate, cake, anything heavy I just eat loads of veg, salad, veg curry, nothing produced all made from scratch and i promise you i feel fantastic! i get the odd stabbing pain . I also have started training again and am planning on doing the colour run and a marathon to raise awareness for Endo When i 'eat clean' i find it stops the fatigue and i also seem to have more time between surgery because it does not come back so fast. Its not an expensive diet as i dont earn much just light and easy.
Also the training really takes my mind of it as i find stress really sent it of...
during my period i drinks shakes because i find i just can't get enough energy and i can't have caffine because I'm allergic to it (gives me major shakes) so i make protein shakes out of only natural substances which keeps my immune system up and helps will the bad gass and gut ache and stops the period bloating. If anyone wants the recipes i can put them up for you
I am not trying to sell anything! i just want to help I dont mind giving you my running plans or anything as i know its so hard to get going again after having a bad bought. Endo has really destroyed me over the years so if i can make someone feel better who has it then i will be cuffed.
