I had an excision of severe endo when I was diagnosed by lap in April and my consultant put me on prostap.
I had my second 3 month injection at the beginning of July, ive had all the usual side effects hot flushes night sweats etc but coping with them now with diet supplements etc.
Im fed up not being able to get up in the mornings, I go to bed before 11 set my alarm for around half 7 / 8 and I cannot wake up and im sleeping until about 11, during the day im not really tired and dont feel like I need that much sleep. I'm waking up during the night to wee usually once but sometimes twice which I was experiencing occasionally before I was diagnosed but know this is every night.
I had constipation after the op but around 3 weeks after I started to get back to normal then it got slowly worse and for around 6 or 7 weeks now I have been going around once a week and only had about 3 proper movements in the whole time, most of the time its been agony to go although now if I do go thats a bit better. Ive tried everything lactulose, movicol powder and some docusate tablets which according to other people I know whove had them really should work but nothing.
I've switched to the endo diet around 70% of the time and always drink almond milk now drink plenty of water and fruit and veg.
Is this all a side effect of the prostap or is it endo?
