I recently had surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. The surgeon said there was a lot of endometriosis. I have had several excision surgeries in the past, including hysterectomy and ovary removal. I sent the pictures to my specialist and he said it looked like old, inactive endo. There is just so much! And I’ve been having issues for almost a year now again.
I had a laparoscopy surgery done 2 years ago. My diagnosis is Chronic Endometriosis. I didn't know about stages the disease has until a friend of mine asked me do you know what stage I have.
Today pains getting worser back again.
I take Alleve Excedrins at times Tylenol Pepto for now nauseous bad headaches, real sick I get before getting my period.
What happens if I decide not to have a hysterectomy? Is it good or bad?
My legs, my arm feel sore
Like ive been workinf out for hours
Hello all! This is my first post here, it’s super long and I appreciate the patience of anyone willing to read it! I’d also really appreciate any form of advice and guidance, and also wanted to see if anyone else here have had similar experiences.
I started my 1st period at 10 (I know lol), and have always had very, very heavy periods. I had all-day-long super painful lower abdominal pain + bleeding around 6 days past the end of my period in July (my period started on the 25th and should have… read more
Has anyone got any good ways to deal with pain, ive been told i have umbilical endo and they’ve put me on the mini pill, i take naproxen and codeine for the pain but usually doenst help if the pain is severe. The pain is usually at its worse when im on my period and my belly button constantly bleeds when im on.
In the past I've tried various meds and never could tell what, if anything helped. This year alone I tried Zoloft (only made it a week before I freaked myself out and quit), counseling, exercise, journaling, and a bunch of herbal supplements, including CBD and medical marijuana. I try to meditate but struggle. I've taken a few different forms of progesterone as well to help with my endo. I'm just feeling so confused, I feel like I'm missing something or I tried too much. I've been stuck at home… read more
I've been on Visanne successfully for 3 years now. It shrank the 2 endometriomas I had in my ovaries. However, in the last few months I've been having moments where I feel really off/sick even that may last for a week. I'm currently not feeling well for like a week and a half now. My symptoms are dry mouth, dehydration, tiredness, shortness of breath at times, pain at side of head in temple area, bubbling feeling in chest area, nervousness, feverish feeling, disturbed sleep, chills, cold hands… read more
Hi Everyone! 🤗
I’m new to the site, nice to meet everyone! I really enjoy reading the content on this site.
I just had my first laparoscopy on the 4th. They found stage 2/3 endometriosis & a cyst that they removed. Question, my doctor said the lesions were not that deep to “excise” so he cauterized the lesions. Being that I had stage 2, beginning of stage 3 with some scar tissue do you feel this was the right approach to the procedure? I’ve read so many negative comments about burning, that… read more
I just got my first Lupron shot yesterday and I want to know what to look out for. I also suffer from anxiety, so its hard to tell what’s a side effect and what is being caused by anxiety.
I was hoping so find more information on ovarian suspensions but I haven’t been able to find a lot, other then a few journal articles. I’m not sure if it’s common and people don’t mention it or it’s rarely done? To cut a long story short, I had a radical excision via lap in 2019 (3 months after my diagnostic surgery) and it was really extensive, so my surgeon actually performed an ovarian suspension. It was literally like two little buttons at the bottom of my stomach, attached to string, that… read more
