Endometriosis UK

Still the same

Evening ladies,

I haven't posted on here for a long time now, so this is just a little update!

I had my terrible "follow up" operation appointment. Was told the ASAP emergency appointment next would be 8th August. They're making me wait 6 months for a decent appointment about my surgery!

I've blacked out a few times due to being so weak and tired. I actually blacked out & fell onto a metal step. Chipped my knee cap & ligament damage, I was in a knee brace and now having physio 😩

I'm currently on my period, as usual it's horrific. I'm still flooding & clotting, and the pain is unreal. What I've noticed the last 3 months is that I've been having terrible hot flushes. I can't control them, there's no happy medium, it's all or nothing. I get SO hot and sticky it's so uncomfortable. They last for a while too. I don't have to be on my period for this to happen. I've been like this all day today! Is this something that's linked to endometriosis ? Does anyone else suffer also? Or can anyone shed any light onto the flushes?

may be age related or early menopause or hormonal


I'm 21...


Hiya hunni, are you on any meds or hormonal treatment? Pill?

I get hot flushes too but I have the Mirena coil in, even before having the coil I was getting hot flushes, I think it may be a hormone thing tbh?

I'm sorry I'm not much use, I'm only 20 myself xx

I hope it eases off for you soon and you feel better xx
