Hi sweeie yes I did have the watery discharge my knickers were wet as if I had wet myself, not very pleasant. Hope you recover really quickly. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to help,

hope you are feeling ok today.

I had my lap (where they also burnt off some endo) last year, and have just finished 6 months on zoladex (for a temporary menopause), to be honest it was about a month that my tummy felt swollen, this frustrated me for a bit then a friend pointed out that a lot had just gone on in my abdomen and no wonder it was swollen! So, i would say be nice to yourself and take care. I hope once the tenderness goes away, coupled with the injections that the pain is better. My injections certainly helped with the pain a bit.



Hi Eri my lovely hope you are ok today.

Thank you so much for your reply I am wearing loose dresses at the moment because I can't stand anything tight around my tummy as swollen and sore inside, I have endio on my bowel so I am hoping the injections and HRT will help with that. Have a lovely Christmas and New year, I hope you will be pain free,

Take care sweetie x
