I'm new to this blog and up until now I think I have dealt with my endo pretty well - minus the pain.
I'm 24 and was diagnosed with endo when I was 22. It took so long and a lot of internal scans and smears to get there but they finally books me in for a lap op! They found endo and an endo polyp which they lasered and fitted in a marina coil during surgery.
It seemed to of gone well until I couldn't get out of bed or even turn around, turned out I had a post op infection pretty bad so ended up in hospital for a week afterwards.
Once that had vanished I felt loads better, the coil was working and I didn't get pain for around 3 months. My op was in Nov 14 and the pain came back around Feb last year!
I didn't want to rely on dihydrocodeine so powered through the pain as it was bearable and not as often as it was until a few months ago.
Now I am getting the pain pretty much every day and right this moment i am in so much pain. I went to the hospital yesterday and it was to decide either between another lap or zoladex - I have additions and my left ovary is now attached to my womb so the best option the doctor said was to try zoladex.
I've been doing a bit of research and besides the massive needle I am pretty unsure about how side effects have effected people on here?
I read that it can damage your bones so I'm a little nervous in all honesty - not handling it very well.
Any advice would be amazing!!
