Hello ladies, I am just looking for some help and advice from women who know endo, as I am beginning to think that the doctors really have no idea what we go through!
I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 2 years ago, but they put a coil in immediately and were able to control it using that. Continuing abdominal pain led to a second surgery which also found polycystic ovaries. I was told that this wouldn't be helped by my coil, and my only option was the pill, which then doesn't help endo.
So I had to make a decision on what I wanted to treat, and seeing as the coil kept embedding itself and causing pain, I volunteered to get that taken out (hurt like hell). Anyway long story short I've now been told I can't have the pill and just have to 'deal with it' for a while.
I am in the last month of my masters and am often in so much pain I feel like I can't breathe and all I can do is bite my tongue so I don't scream. I just need to keep going for 1 more month and I could really use any advice or support you can give me? I feel like I shouldn't constantly be taking pain killers because it isn't helping my mental state or my health in the long run, so if anyone has any tips and tricks I could really use the help right now.
Thank you so much ladies <3
