I am 30 years old and been suffering from endometriosis for about 8 years now. Like majority of people i get pain in lower abdo, my lower back, too of my thighs, sometimes i get pain during intercourse, and i get pain on my left side under my ribs down to my overias. I had a lapo to diagnose the condition and my gyne said there is endo present but not a great deal,but doesnt mean it dont hurt as much, she continued to say that even if u have a bit the pain can be severe and sometimes u can have loads and not be in much pain.
I have tried every pill tablet and that didnt work, within a hour of taking it, it were coming back up. I had the pill injection and went from size 10 to 16 in under a year so stopped that, tried the implant and that just made me aggressive. had the gosling injection in my stomach and it just caused my pain to be even more severe than it is, my bleeding were that heavy i didnt dare go anywere. Then had the mirana coil fitted, and that were just like the gosling injections and after 4 months of naggin they finally took it out. I have been back and forth to my gp with the pain and he just gives me tramadol and codine all the time, even though i have told him it dnt work.
My stomach swells up and it looks like i am 8 months pregnant, i get bloated, cnt eat a great deal and not sleepin for more than a couple of hours at night cause of the pain.
My gyne has offered me a hystrectomy and i have accepted, but they cant guarentee that the pain will go. I just want my life back, i got 4 children and want to be a normal mum and be able to plan things with them and do them instead of sayin sorry but i cnt cause of the pain.
Has anyone on here had the hystrectomy and did it work for you?
