I had pelvic physio today. I have met with the physio before and feel she really understands endo, however, I have had a very bad case and I am currently awaiting more surgery with a specialist, as my last op caused an unexplained sharp right side pain.
So today I had an internal. She believes my muscles are too tense (I agree) and she literally tried to “stretch” them. Anyone with endo can image how painful this was and she eventually had to stop. She was absolutely obsessed with telling me this is why I have painful sex even though I don’t and have never mentioned that!
The worst part is this whole thing has left me with that right side pain and I have literally been bed ridden with my hot water bottle, taking codeine and trying not to vomit since 9am. It’s cost me another sick day with work and potentially tomorrow.
I just don’t see how extreme agony all day afterwards is normal for physio?
They expect me to return for more but I feel pretty jaded about the whole thing now. Although I agree that things are too tense and I can see how manipulating these muscles could help, I also know that painful examinations is a very severe endo symptom for me and if they can’t even finish it, and I still have endo pulling things out of whack, I don’t see the point in putting myself through it.
Apologies for the long post. Has anyone else had an extremely painful experience? Is there light at the end of the physio tunnel?
