Hi, I'm new here but like others we cant seem to get a straight answer from a doctor!!!! I'll tell you my story I was diagnosed with ibs,,I started getting pain around 7 years ago only happens ever now and then so did not connect the dots. It continues to get worse and worse. Then I fell pregnant with my 2nd child and had spd really badly. And after her birth (2 1\2 urs ago) the pain became a daily thing. I will say my periods only last three days most the pain I get everyday is unbearable. When I first went to the docs they said IBS and didn't take me seriously but then only 8 month ago I found out my mum had it. So armed with this new info I crawled onto the docs and told them this. They referred me o the consultant and they said to try zoladex because its a guess you have endo and zoladex will help then they will leave me a month and see what happens. Well zoladex did work I felt human. Then my god the pain came big style within a couple of weeks of ot being out of my system, Went back to consultant today. Told me they now know its endo no cure so I will have to have the marina coil fitted as zoladex is not long term. So they put that in never In my life think it would hurt as much as it did the pain was horrible but half way thro couldn't stop now!! So they said no lap! As there's no cure and I'm 28 so wont need surgery. I hope this works I cant cope with the pain and I don't understand how having periods will help my endo. I'm sorry I'm really frustrated and feel fobbed off again 😭
