Waiting for surgery but pain Is getting worse

Hi all. I am on a waiting list for surgery for my endometriosis. The pain I am now experience is absolutely awful. I have suffered for 6 years but jn the recent months nothing is easing the pain, I have had to take the day off work today which I hate doing just because of the amount of pain has incapacited me. Any asvice on pain relief, I do use a hot water bottle at present. Any help would be much appreciated.

have you been given any prescription pain meds or hormone treatments to help you while you wait for surgery?

I already have a coil fitted which they have said they will remove and then replace but no pain medication.

I ended up in hospital over the weekend with the pain. Still waiting for Lap myself.

I was given Tramadol as other painkillers weren't working e.g paracetamol, cocodamol

I'm not taking them every 4 hours, but will when I get to a cant cope stage. I had forgotten what it was like to not be in pain.. Its bliss for a few hours!

Please go see someone who can give you something to help. If you've already tried basic painkillers that aren't working let them know.

Thank you for your reply, I will try and get in the docs, I have been up most of the night, the pain is beginning to become unbearable. I just don't know what else to do.

You sometimes wonder why people go into these professions...

Praying you get it sorted. When I went in hospital with pain they were really great so if you find the right place you should get sorted!
