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.
I hear Sunbeam is another good brand for electrical heating pads.
Has anyone ever had a Spinal Cord Stimulation procedure?
My pain is so bad that the dr. wants me to give it a try but it is very detailed & was wondering fi anyone ever had one or know of someone who has.
Thank you ladies.
