I've been really struggling with my endometriosis for the last couple of months to the point that I've been signed off work. I always get really severe pain on my period and bleeding is so heavy that I have leaked a couple of times at work (have to change sanitary towels every half hour at times). I've also developed a chocolate cyst on my right ovary which is just over 5cm and I'm having to take tramadol and liquid morphine every day to help with pain
I was due to have an appointment with endo clinic next month but everything is on hold due to coronavirus. After speaking to GP, we decided to start zoladex to put me in temporary menopause to help with symptoms and hopefully stop cyst from getting worse until I am able to have a review at my endo clinic (hopefully things will be up and running again soon...).
Had my 1st injection this morning and I've read that the first couple of weeks can be bad in terms of pain and bleeding.
How has everyone else coped on temporary menopause and any advise with regards to work as I would like to go back soon, thought likely on reduced hours? I'm thinking of asking for a fan on my desk to help with hot flushes.
Any other tips?
Thanks as always fellow endo warriors
