This is the first time I have ever reached out about my endo. I have had two laparoscopic surgeries and am awaiting a third currently, I have so far been described as treatment resistant as have had a few different tablets and have been prescribed Yasmin to take back to back to avoid cycles.
For the last few years I have experienced bleeding and pain almost every day, last year I was admitted to hospital in septic shock - the source was never discovered but shortly after a small 'mass or thickening' was identified. Since being in hospital I have suffered chronic fatigue, increased bleeding and pain. I'll be honest here, I don't really understand endo and have yet to have a doctor be able to confirm or to rule out that the fatigue and pain levels I'm experiencing are common with the condition. I am only just holding down a full time job, have no social life and unfortunately very little sex life. I have an incredibly supportive husband and my work place has been unbelievably supportive, but I have really struggled to explain my symptoms and to locate good information sources. I am on long term codiene to help with the pain, but that has its own set of problems. If anyone can suggest anything - I am struggling to live a normal life at the moment!
Thanks for reading
