I have been waiting for a hysterectomy to help with my endo for a couple of years now but I've historically been treated poorly by doctors and don't feel I was given enough viable options and have now decided I would like to try and help my body naturally, and then if that doesn't work revisit the major surgery path. Has anyone here had any success with natural remedies? Diet, supplements, anything? I want to be prepared for when I stop my injections. Thanks
I applied for a national disability card today and got it. It was quite stressful to apply for though. I don’t really understand the benefits of the card as in discounts/skipping queues. Does it mean whoever is with me can skip the queue too or do they need a carer card. I can’t keep researching it because it’s so stressful so if anyone understands the benefits then please explain it to me, thanks 😊 I also applied for a blue badge for disabled parking for my physical disabilities so hopefully I get that because it would really help to not have to park far away and walk ages 🤞🏼 but I’m also quite anxious about if I do get that because I’ve heard stories of random people confronting disabled people and saying horrible things for them parking in the disabled bay because their disability isn’t visible.
Just a question for those diagnosed with endometriosis. I had surgery to diagnose and remove Endo back in February, I am doing really well physically and have healed well. My cycle has gone back to normal and is so much more manageable. That said, I am having a huge problem with mood swings and irritability. I have never had this before to this extent. My doctor put me on a strong birth control to help with endometriosis so I'm sure that is it or is at least some of it. Does anyone have any tips on how to manage/ has anyone experienced this.
So basically I missed my depo shot and I haven’t been able to get any appointments recently but while I’ve been off it I’ve felt more like myself and so much more motivated than in the year and a half I’ve been taking it, but I have really severe endometriosis and pms. What should I do?
I had my laparoscopic surgery on the 27th (about 3 weeks ago) and was diagnosed with stage 4 endo - with it being concentrated on both ovaries and colon. I was feeling a lot better last week until Saturday and went to the ER Sunday because of severe lower right abdominal pain that was radiating toward my back. The ER did a CAT scan and couldn't find anything. They said I likely pulled a muscle. The pain is a lot worse at night, almost to the point of being unbearable. Has anyone else experienced this after a laparoscopy?
Any advice on how to heal scars? I'm using bio oil and strataderm... anyone gotten results with these? any other tips? thanks a bunch!
Any helpful supplements or tips? Next step is surgery my hormonal ring only helps so much and my cramping has been worse, it is happening every time I “finish” as well as w/ that time of the month if I’m late for my birth control at all and sometimes even when I’m not. I’m a vegetarian but I’m going to try omega 3s that are vegan, are there any other supplements I should try? I also take Advil and use heating pad when needed too ofc.
hi just some advice. did anyone find there endo would flare with bowel moving. Currently, my endo pain is about a 5 on pain chart daily but I find when I have a "bowel motion" for about hours & hours before the pain goes upto a 9 then when I've been it only goes to about a 8 and will stay that way for at least 24hours. it makes me dread eating a proper meal. Has anyone else have these kinda symptoms??
I'm potentially starting on Zoladex in a month or so and I was wondering if anyone has been on it and what your experiences have been with them? Thank you in advance 😊
Hi, I was just diagnosed with endometriosis and pcos. was hoping to connect with others with it to help see how you cope with it.
Has anyone else ever been fired for a job due to health issues? This could be mental and/or physical.
Just wish I didn’t have to go through endrometriosis what helps me is sleeping on heating pad helps a lot of pain
Any endo warriors with Gastroparesis and EDS? Most of my endo is on my bowels and I’m scared to let my endo grow too much because of the wear and tear GP and EDS can cause on their own. How did you approach the situation?
Does anyone have experience using TENS machines with endometriosis pain? I own one but am yet to use it due to a minor fear of electrocuting myself with it (hah.).
Has anyone had endometriosis whilst being overweight and/or no periods?
what has everybody been prescribed for pain ? i’ve been prescribed naproxen and cocodamol and don’t think it makes much difference x
I’m on the endometriosis diagnosis journey right now and I’m wondering, is there any treatment that actually makes you feel better? For me, pain during intercourse is excruciating, and I’d love to know if this is just something I’ll have to live with or can it improve?
