I have recently been started on the Prostap injections - I am due my second one next week. I have found no relief, in fact it has become worse over the past 3weeks however appreciate that it usually kicks in after the second injection. What i dont understand is its point, and why the consultant has offered it to me and many other women when it only seems to make matters worse or at best have no affect other than the side effects.
To keep it short - I had a Lap last may which diagnosed stage 4 Endo, my right tube was stuck to my bladder, left stuck to my bowel and both tubes had become stuck to the inside of my pelvic wall. In October they removed the endo and adhesions as best they could, realigned everything to where it should be leaving me thinking i would become a "normal" female, pain free and have a normal cycle aided with the pill and implant. I couldnt have been more wrong. The monthly pains i was experiencing have become a daily occurance, and i've just had enough to say the least, part of me thinks why did i have the 2 laps if im now like this. I returned to my consultant - who after my description told me i had IBS and requested i did a 3 month diet diary. I was fuming and felt let down. Thankfully i went back and he took me more seriously, apologising for the previous appointment and offering me the Prostap injections. I said id give anything a go, even if they said stand on your head for a month i would give it a go. I am to have 4 injections and im due back to my consultant in August.
What i dont understand is why they have given it to me when he even said it might help but it probably wont due to how advanced i am. I appreciate they dont want to do further surgery but it is the next option if this fails.
Can anyone help with their experiences and what they have been advised and offered after Prostap. I would just like to see a light at the end of the tunnel so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated Thanks!
