In so much pain still


Hi Ladies, hope you are all OK. Well my pain is getting worse, none of my tablets for the pain are working, I'm on 30mg co-codomol 500mg paracetamol and they are making me even more constipated and so tired. I'm already really tired everyday to the point where on a weekend I have to take 3-4 naps in the day. I have burn marks by my abdomen from my hot water bottle because of the pain trying to help it. It hurts like hell when me and my husband make love and it is so annoying. I have only had one injection of the Depo but once I have had my appt with the consultant on 7th March I will not be staying on it as I do not like the side effects and it isn't helping with my pain anyway. Has anyone been on the depo injection and how long did it take for your periods to come back? As I have only had one injection I'm hoping it wont be too long.

Hiya, I've been on and off the depo injection for years, always found it a good form of contraception, I think once it's Worn off maybe 1-2 months I think to get your periods again xx

Thank you hun. I hope it won't to long. xx

Thank you Lindle. I am in the West Midlands I have my appt with the consultant and I will be making sure I have the lap. No progesterone meds are working so not sure what else to do.

How do I find the specialist Centre? What do I type into Google? Thank you for your advice. I keep having flare ups of bloatingness and it's so horrible, I keep losing my appetite.

Have you tried naproxen along with paracetomol? I had to stop taking co codomal because of the constipation.
