Im stage 4 Endometriosis and Im still waiting for a date for excision surgery as all else has failed to help with the pain. Ive been told it will be at least another month even though that would take me over the 18wk target. Isnt it within my rights to have the surgery privately ?. How would I go about this ?.
Sorry this is a bit garbled Im on a lot of morphine and in a lot of pain.
Basically, Im no longer coping. I cant get on top of the pain even though im on a huge amount of pain meds. I can barely walk or sleep. I pick up my 4yr old from school whacked out on opiates as its the only way I can physically get there. This last flare up has given me pain 24 /7 and im now starting to think there is something seriously wrong ie cancer. Most of my pain is in my back and covers the whole area, as well of course as my pelvis + groin.
I have a lot to be grateful for, blessed with a child for a start but I just cant see beyond this life of pain and knowing I have to keep suffering like this for at least another month feels too much to bear. I was wondering if my doctor may be able to hospitalize me to help me get on top of the pain. I had to take so much medication to get to sleep 2 nights ago that as I was passing out I truly thought I wouldn't wake up again.
Im not looking for sympathy, I know so many of you are suffering just as I am but I really would appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance. With Love Fiona
