Bleeding 2 Months After Laparoscopy
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone,

I had my lap on the 12th June and had widespread but superficial endo and it was lasered off. After this I experienced heavy bleeding for around 2-3 weeks and my GP put me on tranexamic acid to stop the bleeding- which it did.

However over the past month I have been experiencing pelvic endo pain AGAIN and tonight, I have started bleeding again

Does Anyone Have Experience With Endo Impacting Nerves?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

A bunch of endo was removed from one of my uterosacral ligaments, and elsewhere, in my third lap last month.
However, I am still having pain in the bowel/sciatic nerve area. My pelvic floor pt has determined that the pain is not related specifically to my pelvic floor.
Besides hot baths, otc pain relievers, and stoof softeners, does anyone have any advice for dealing with this kind of nerve pain? I have an appointment with a Nook surgeon in June, but that’s a long time from now…

Does anyone use heating pads in their workplace? I've been using the stick-on disposable heat patches. I am thinking of getting a heat pad for my office desk chair but can't seem to find anything designed for this purpose.
