Only a couple of month since surgery

Hi it's only been a couple of months since my daughter had her surgery to release adhesions and get rid of minimal endo she has been on the pill a few weeks before surgery and ever since back to back and has been bleeding give or take a few days constantly she has also been suffering from stabbing pains in the ame place as before lots of cramps and extremely exhausted any advise to combat the tiredness ? And in turn is prob causing depression about the whole situation

Im thinking that after surgery,with this much surgery her iron levels might be low.

That will contribute to fatigue and depression.

This is two fold though,in that the bleeding is not normal and needs to be seen to.

The pill is causing some of this and is probably not right for her.

No pill will control bleeding through a surgery,its going to break through at some point.

Did they do a curette (d and c )?

If not,they should have as there cld be a hormonal imbalance now there with endo in the mix.

I would suggest stopping the pill and see if that pulls it up and relieves some of the cramping,step 1.

Go to the docs and have tests for iron deficiency and infections etc.

If that all does not stop it in a couple of weeks i would have the d and c.

Reset her clock so to speak if needed.

I hope she will be ok

Kind regards



Thank you rose some great suggestions she did go back to the doctor and he said to continue with the pill as it can take a while for your body to adjust she was never given a d & c so will pass on your info to her thanks again xx


Its funny i have noticed they seem to do endo without d and c which is odd.

Having the d and c at the same time rights any imbalance and also buys those ladies recovery time before their first period hits,if opting to go the natural method.

I think it should be standard to do both,make sure the uterus is good.

hi, I'm no medical professional just a longtime sufferer passing on a tip.

I've had a number of ops myself and i would also suggest that she gets some iron supplements even if they are over the counter as the GPs are reluctant unless you levels are really low to give you anything. I use the spatone liquid sachets and lots of veg. The change in hormones if the pills new will make her tired.

I hope her bloods come back clear.


Thank you I took her to the doctors tonight and he was useless he has however changers her pill and told her to make an appointment to get bloods taken and the And the next appointment they can give her is not till next Wednesday what a joke she is feeling sick and dizzy but her blood pressure is fine and he doesn't think she is anaemic and possible she just has a virus infection and not endo related she has slept all day today And I can't help but worry about her but I guess We'll just have to see how she feels tomorrow as she starts work at 12
