I just wondered if any of you ladies had been through IVF, with pretty severe daily pain (probably due to endo, adeno and endometriomas!)
I'm 4 months out of surgery to remove endometriosis... Which I thought was going to be good excision, and bring some pain relief, but the surgeon may not have been that thorough! Had several endometriomas excised, recto vaginal endo excised, endo nodule removed from the bowel, adhesions removed.
Geared up for another round of IVF, had the consult and then had my surgery review. Not great as I already have 3 small cysts growing on my ovaries (2 could just be simple, but one looks endo) and a 3cm endometrioma behind my left ovary. Also told it looks like I have adenomyosis.
I had already started my IVF (had baseline scan) when my pain decides to ramp up. It's not subsided and now I'm going through it with this horrid constant back and pelvic pain.... Consultant decided the down regulating drugs might help ease things And to continue when we discussed it, as things will just get worse if we wait... But the injections haven't yet made any difference, (it has only been three days so possibly too early)
Has anyone been through ivf with such pain? any tips on coping as limited with painkillers etc. I've been allowed co-codamol for now. Experiences please... Good or bad.
