Hiya, almost 3 months ago I had the mirena coil put in during a lap. Ever since then ive been experiencing daily intense pain. Which has lead be me to take 500mg naproxen everyday plus occasionally other pain killers as well. I went to the gp a few days ago because the amount of pain killers I have taken over this time frame had become concerning to me, which is about 1 or 2 tablets every 4-6 hours. She said everything looked fine, didn't want to do an internal exam as I'm not nor ever been sexually active and that would have hurt. She ended up prescribing be 15mg codeine to take when the pain gets worse and said that it I shouldn't get it removed as it helps well with the endo pain. Can anyone offer any advice on what to do? I'm afraid of getting dependent on the pain killers but the pain gets so intense I can't stand up anymore and am left with no other option. Any advice is appreciated.
