Hi everyone, I'm new here and I was just looking for some advice. My girlfriend was finally diagnosed with Endo earlier this year (after a five years of being told it was all sorts by various doctors) she had a laparoscopy three months ago in which they found two patches of Endo and got rid of it. After the recovery period from the operation she felt like her symptoms from the Endo had gone and she had two really good months of being pretty much pain free.
However these past couple of weeks the Endo symptoms have returned again and shes in a lot of pain again which is taking a toll on her mental health, as all she wants to do is feel like a 'normal' 22 year old. As now it feels like shes right back to square one, basically I was wondering if anyone has any advice of where to go from here? My girlfriend is currently taking the pill non stop but she hates it due to the side effects is there a way forward from here in maybe getting the coil or something else?
I'm just concerned as shes not coping well, I've suggested posting on this site so she can talk to people with the condition and calling the advice line but she just doesn't want to talk to anyone else and then she shuts down on me. I don't suppose anyone has any ideas as to how I can help? as it breaks my heart to see her like this.
Apologies for the long message and thank you for your time xx
