Basics - diagnosed after 9 years of pain and endo was lasered, was told it was minimum (by a standard hospital that had no knowledge of the condition). A year later I had another op as pain got worse and they told me that the endo hadn’t grown back and fitted the coil. Had the coil removed after a year as my pain came back and I had depression.
After my own research I asked my Dr to refer me to a BSGE accredited hospital where my now Dr explained that he thinks my endo is growing very deep and that is why general gynaecologists have not been able to locate it. I have been seeing pain management for the last year and I am due to see the Dr again on the 12th September.
The flare up I’m having at the moment is horrendous. I get all my pain in my right side and it spreads to my hip, stomach, groin, leg and back. It had been SO awful these past few days and has only got worse. Usually exercise helps it but I’ve been on a couple of light runs and done some yoga and nothing has helped. I’ve used my tens machine and strong painkillers but again, haven’t helped. I’ve now started to bleed brown blood and some of it is quite clotty. I’ve never had this before and I don’t know whether I should be worried. I’m not ovulating and I’m not due on. I’ve felt so so sick today too.
It has been hurting when I use the toilet too, and I keep getting horrible pains in my vagina.
Has anyone else had these types of flare ups?
