Endometriosis Research Study
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Currently, my professor, Dr. Mary Ramos, and I are conducting a research qualitative study on endometriosis. We have received approval from Kennesaw State University's Institutional Review Board (IRB). As a nursing student and an endometriosis patient, I have observed the lack of effective interventions to manage endometriosis-related pain. Our goal of this study is to gain a better insight into the lives of other young adult endometriosis patients… read more

Is Anyone On Disability For Endometriosis?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have several painful conditions, endometriosis being one of them, my pain is so severe and now been hospitalized twice due to small bowel obstruction. Also they found I have an autoimmune type of esophagitis. My insides are constantly inflamed and my cysts are very painful especially before and during my period and it’s getting worse every month, last two periods I ended up in the ER. I can barley eat due to all the stomach issues and the fatigue is real. Any advice for getting disability??

The UNSPOKEN Truth Behind ENDO.. Opiates.
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

So many of us deal with pain that would debilitate our lives, if we weren't able to sustain ourselves with some sort of medication to tackle the flair up. But what works the best?

Most of my doctors have put me on Tramadol first and Oxycodone when I explain how Tramadol doesn't do much for my pain. As well as nerve blockers and NSAIDS (Which I limit always to, when needed). HOWEVER, society has a different view on pain medication and I'm wondering if this has made anyone feel uncomfortable… read more

Hysterectomy Option
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

For those who have had a hysterectomy could you share your experience
I have had excision, been on Lupron, Depo and every pill under the sun. My options are slim and I’m miserable
Yes I had my surgery with a Nook excision specialist.
Yes I know a hysterectomy is not a cure.
Yes I know I’m young.
Yes I am aware that takes away my option to bear children.
It’s a difficult decision- hence my research and advice seeking.
But I am out of options and I do not want to be miserable the rest of my… read more
