Bleeding 2 Months After Laparoscopy

Bleeding 2 Months After Laparoscopy

Since then I have had no bleeding and have been on the progesterone only pill, like normal. 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?

Does Anyone Have Experience With Endo Impacting Nerves?

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…

Endometriosis Pain

Endometriosis Pain

I am not necessarily asking a question. reading through these posted makes me want to cry because finally someone else understands me. I want to bring it to someone’s attention that there is a little magical device out there. I heard about this device 6 months ago, and after receiving it 2 months ago, my quality of life has improved. Not completely, but I think this information could change someone’s life. https://mylivia.com/
Please click that link and read about this device. Essentially Livia… read more

It’s like a tens unit… sends small electric pulses to your nerve endings in your belly and essentially keeps them too busy to send pain signals to your brain alleviating pain

I've had very similar stuff. I found that mine was due to nerve over sensitisation. This can cause your pelvic muscles to be dysfunctional, even if they seem strong. you may loose bladder control… read more

Has any one used a tens machine for pain? If so did it work? and if it did how well did it work for you?
