I've had a pain in my lower right abdomen for over a week now. I have Stage IV Endometriosis and was treated with a laparoscopy last yr followed by a right oopherectomy.
I manage Endo pain and flares with a Fentanyl pain patch and tramadol. Despite using these, this pain has been constant for over a week.
I'm reluctant to approach my GP, as I'm worried he'll just say it's my Endometriosis & I'll waste his time. But how do I know it's not something else? What else could it be?
Normally, during an Endo flare, I would find some relief with pain killers (even if it doesn't last very long!) but I can't seem to get rid of this.
(I also had bleeding during intercourse yesterday- don't know if the 2 are linked??)
Please help... xx
*update* after a visit to the DR - I have peritonitis
