I was originally diagnosed with PCOS, which I might still have since I do get ovarian cysts, but now my doctor is saying based on my symptoms that I probably have endometriosis. I haven't had a laparoscopy yet. I'll have to wait until I get home for that to happen. I am currently in the U.K. for grad school. I don't have any family here, so I don't have my usual support system and everyone at home is 6 hours behind, including my gyno. I'm really just looking for support. The pain is so intense when it hits and it's happening more and more frequently. It can be so intense that the only release of pressure is throwing up. Is there anything besides surgery that really helps?
