Hi all..I am new here and was diagnosed with stage 4 Endometriosis and Adenomyosis about 6 months ago. I am 38 and didnt want to take prostrap initially and thought i could manage my symptoms naturally through diet. I have had good months however recently I seem to be bleeding constantly have fatigue some days, pains in my side, ovary areas, lower back and now have a weak right leg. I saw my consultant yesterday who has given me my first prostrap injection and the option of hrt tablets incase of bad side effects. My surgery will be a hysterectomy and excision surgery and is over 3 months away so was told prostrap will help in the meantime. I have deep inviltrating endometriosis with an recto vaginal nodule which was at least 2cm in size last time I was checked. The mri also showed adenomyosis.
Is there anyone else here who bleeds alot (most of the month maybe a week off!) And has pain in the side?
Did prostrap help with this? I am also unsure whether I now need to take HRT or do I just wait to see if I cannot manage the side effects? What were your experiences? I only need 2 injections before my surgery will commence. I have had my first 3 monthly one.
Lastly does anyone know of any supplements that good help with any of the symptoms?
Apart from a sore bum after injection...I have nothing as its too soon but would like to be as prepared as I can.
Thankyou! Hope you are all keeping as well as you can be!
