I Am Worried About Pain In My Right Side That Flares Up For A Month Or More Now.

I Am Worried About Pain In My Right Side That Flares Up For A Month Or More Now.

I’ve been thinking that I have to get Laparoscopic surgery and maybe excision because for most of my life I just had pain during my period ( as far as I could tell although I’ve had bad digestive issues my whole life which now I know is related ) but as of this year, pains in my left side have started that effect my foot and eye and lower back on the left side. The pain comes and goes but lasts a month or more now. Does this kind of progression happen to most women with Endo? I’ve always been… read more

Does Anyone Have A Mass On Their Liver?

Does Anyone Have A Mass On Their Liver?

I was diagnosed with a benign mass on my liver, but doctors are unsure exactly what it is without a biopsy which is too complex with it being benign they don't recommend. My thoughts are it could be endometriosis because I can feel it more on my period.

Tips For Pain Management.

Tips For Pain Management.

I have been using Althea for a month before I switch to Visanne. I have been using Visanne for more than a week now but it's been two days since I am feeling abdominal pain. I have been taking mefenamic acid to control the pain but when it wears off, it still hurt. I have been told by my OB this would happen as I am having spotting now but it hurts. Also when I go to ER they just gave me the same medicine and told me to rest it off. Any tips for pain management so it won't hurts so much?
