  • Hey hun

    Keep you chin up, I know exactly what you are going through.

    I still have my full-time job (but i dont know for how long! :/ )

    I woke up today crying again after a really bad night..the hot patch is my best friend these days! :p

    Be strong, I know its hard, this is what I try too (plus I'm too nervous another lap surgery is coming in a few months!)

    Big hugs xxx Hope everything goes well with your doctor's appointment xx

  • You are obviously a very brave women! But how ridiculous to hear of so many women like us suffering to this extent with little to help us in this day and age!!!!

    Have you tried a TENS machine? I go through about four a year and they cost about £40 to buy but they easily wear out and break. I can honestly say that without mine I would have had to give up work a long time ago.

    I still have problems but they have made such a huge difference in terms of being able to function at some level and not at all.

    I wish you lots of luck and am sending you healing vibes x

  • Hey

    thanks for your reply, and no..I'm not brave at all, as I get very low days and very often, but then I realise that endo wont rule my life and one way or another I will win.

    I'm willing to try anything especially if after the next operation I still have pain etc. I'm about to start the endo diet and after the operation I will try acupuncture too. I have already started a bit of meditation and I will definitely try the tens machine.

    As you understood there are so many things that might work, and drugs is not the answer. I'm really against being addicted to some kind of strong painkillers and I'm glad that my doctor refused to prescribed them from the very first minute. :)

    Wishing you all the best
