Are any of you on any long-term pain management medication/s? And if so, what are you taking please?
My doctor has tried me on a few but nothing's helped so far and I'm desperate to find something to help :( I'm at my wits end :(
I take codeine, cocodamol, tramadol etc when I have flare ups but I'm trying to find a long-term pain management medication/method. Any advice, help or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
I'm wondering how soon is it okay to use a heating pad after surgery?
Also, I have 10mg Percocet, but my pain is not going down. It's really bad. It's not the shoulder pain, but my belly button, stomach and vagina area. Any thing help people get the pain manageable after surgery?
I just had a diagnostic laparoscopy about 5 days ago. They cut out some endo on my ovaries, bladder and corners. I am still experiencing a lot of internal pain as if I'm cramping like I used to. Is this normal? Most of the YouTube videos I saw the women only complained about pain in their shoulders.
My Obgyn has only prescribed pain pills- Vicodin and Percocet for my pelvic pains. I'm thinking about alternative medicine. I've heard Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help with my Endometriosis and Adenomyosis. But I haven't heard any stories specifically linked with endo or adeno.
Having an endo flare up, but pain meds are not working like they usually do. I only take percocet when i absoluelty have to which is about once a month. I have the lowest dosage and perscribe to take 1-2 pills every 4-6 hours. Mu question is, can i take another pill if it has been 3 hours? Can i take a half? I am counting down this last hour to when i can take another pill as perscribed but its killing me
my daughter has suffered 14 years of pain, had 2 operations & copes with using these meds, is working every day (apart from impossible days)so I am asking for her, thank you
Talked to a surgeon yesterday and he is gonna try and get me on the schedule. *crosses fingers that it is soon* How long do laps normally take? Is it just to look around and diagnose, or do they remove the built up tissue during it? How long are you in the hospital after? What is recovery like?
Does anyone ever feel the majority of your pain in your hips and lower back during a flare? I certainly have pretty severe pain in my pelvic area, and thats where it actually started, but my hips and lower back feel like there's so much pressure in them its painful to sit or lay in any position. My sacral joints are on fire. Just finished ovulating and now i basically get to have worsening pain for 2 more weeks until my period is over. My hips feel like they are going to bust apart. Is this… read more
My OB/GYN has been providing me with a script for Percocet to help manage my pain for a year & a 1/2. I consider myself to be a responsible user. He is retiring & not renewing his license to prescribe narcotics. Next week I have an appointment with a pain management center. What can I expect from my new Dr? I definitely have a physical dependency on the Percocet but it is the only way I find relief. I've tried anti inflammatories & multiple NSAIDS. Nothing works as well as the Percs.
