I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experiences about nutrition with managing their endo symptoms.
I had my second lap 3 and a half weeks ago. It went well in that they found tissue in various places and ablated it. I am currently building up with walks etc and was a lot more mobile quicker than my after my first lap which I'm pleased with. I'm sore when I walk etc but know it's important to be mobile. I'm also bleeding a bit after gentle movements but I'm thinking this could also be due to having a new coil put in during my lap and my body getting used to it.
The issue I'm having is bloating. I know at the moment my insides are still recovering and it may be that I'm being inpatient with myself but I'm also very aware bloating is a very prominent symptom for me. I'm taking digestive enzymes, vitamin B complex, multi vitamins and turmeric supplements. I drink a lot of fresh ginger tea and take peppermint tablets occasionally. I avoid complex carbs and generally stick to a low fodmap diet. I occasionally have caffeine and almost zero alcohol. I don't seem to notice a difference at all. I know stress and heat don't help but yesterday I looked 7 months pregnant and it was so painful to move. It impacts my confidence and sense of worth with body image etc.
I'm wondering if anyone has sought professional advice from a nutritionist? Most of what I take/do is from lots of reading and a specific endometriosis book about diet. I am very science led so am quite sceptical when something doesn't have an evidence base. That said, has anyone seen a nutritionist and can comment on your experience?
I'd appreciate any views and for those in the UK I hope you ladies are surviving ok in this heat! All the best to you all xx
