I've posted on here before about my struggles with endometriosis and usually my posts are a lost/need advice post but I'm glad to say this one is a positive one!
Quick history for anyone who hasn't seen my previous posts. I've suffered intensely with endo for over 6 years now finally being diagnosed in April after a laparoscopy! I thought that was the end when they 'removed' it from my bowel, tubes and various other places! So you can imagine how naive and disappointed I was when after surgery the pain was worse than ever! On my follow up they offered me zoladex injections however I wasn't sure but what I did know what that I couldn't continue living with the pain as it was effecting my work life! - I have a highly demanding management job in a well known company! And as understanding as they were/are I couldn't keep doing it! So finally I decided I had nothing to lose and went for it!
After the first injection I was regretful as initially the pain was unbearable to the point I almost went to a&e however I rode the storm and I am currently approaching my 3rd injection. The pain has all but gone and the side effects from zoladex are nothing in comparison I do have hot flushes frequently although I have been fortunate not to suffer from low moods in fact I would probably go as far as to say my moods have improved as the pain was making me snappy and miserable to be around!
I am 25 and felt like these were big decisions I just didn't want to make however I am GLAD I did! There is a light at the end of the tunnel and whilst I realise that this doesn't work for everyone it has for me and I just want to share my experience with you lovely lot!
Sorry for the essay and if anyone has any questions regarding it please feel free to message me! X
