I have suffered with endo for many years. I had a laparoscopy done 3 years ago, they did laser on the tissue that was latched to my ovaries and zapped the cysts in my ovaries. I was hoping that was the end of it, boy was I wrong!
I'm a newly wed and the endo is now starting to affect my marriage. Only been married for 7 months and have sex 3-4 times a month. My husband is in to physical activities and told me he feels bored because I am not able to do anything with him. I tried joining the gym but it made my pain worse. I tried yoga and struggled to even do that due to the pain.
The doctors have advised a hysterectomy but I've said no for now. I would love to have children so have made the choice to live with the pain until I am able to do that. It was an easy decision but at the same time, I do feel like ripping out my insides as they affect my day to day. Getting to work is always a struggle, walking or sometimes even turning over in bed hurts. I plan my entire life around this disease and I hate it.
I am on the pill, take buscopan and strong inflammatory meds but sometimes these don't help. I feel the older I'm getting the worse this is becoming, I am 34 and feel like I'm 80.
I guess I'm looking for any advice on diets and exercise to help me beat the pain... willing to try anything at this stage!
