Hello everyone, I come here looking for some help desperately. I had surgery booked to treat my endometriosis but after starting the surgery the surgeon ran into complications and couldn't actually treat me. I have been suffering for many years with pain on and off and it had always been put down to my PCOS with some a & e trips resulting in me being told its all in my head even. Finally I had been given a diagnosis of endometriosis and with surgery booked I could see at least a temporary end in sight. After waking from my surgery to find that absolutely nothing had been done in terms of treatment ( I have stitches so actually worse off) I broke down into tears. I have a 10 month old little boy who I struggle to care for as some days I can barely walk due to my pain, with the high dosage pain killers only knocking me out and masking the pain temporarily I'm trying to find other ways I can manage the pain or treat the pain myself as I do not want to be knocked out on painkillers all of my sons young life I want to try and live as normally as possible so if anyone has any suggestions of what helped for anyone, be it diet/medication or anything I would love to hear it. I have been told I could be waiting up to a year for a open surgery date as keyhole/ a lap is not an option for me so I'd like to try help myself manage without the highly addictive pain killers I've been put on.
Thank you for your time x
