Thank you…It really does just seem to be a ‘groan and bear it’ concept. I have thought of seeing a specialist but literally everyone’s story is identical – no cure and even a hysterectomy only offers marginal improvement without any certainty that doesn’t cause even greater unknown issues…. I wish that naproxen still worked for me! I hate th…
That is great @CSKSMJHP that you got some fun snowmobiling in! We have had mostly a mild winter here in the East Coast in the US, so not much outdoor snow activities which is a bummer.
We went up and did a little snowmobiling today with the kids. Had some fun for a few hours.
Treatment wise, I stick to foods I know don’t bother me too much, take the medication recommended by my doctors, and use cannabis.
Yes…wishing you @CSKSMJHP a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Did you do anything special??
I saw your other post and you are absolutely battling a lot & difficult symptoms! You truly ann endo warrior!! Have you found any therapies that help to ease the pain & symptoms?
@BodyMutiny, I am so sorry that your symptoms have progressed so much & that you are in so much pain. Have you considered finding a specialist?
I have looked into specialists and my plan doesn’t offer any, but I will ask for a second opinion. Thank you for the suggestions!
Happy birthday to me!

The pain is now not restricted to my period and is crippling – my lower back wrapping seemingly around my hips is a constant cramp and walking just doesn’t seem an option, vomiting does- but w…

I agree and can relate as I was diagnosed in 2002. There’s a whole lot out now. Way more information and support.
How am I today? Hmmm…my body must be strong, as I approach my 34th birthday and it hasn’t given up yet. I keep fighting even sometimes enjoy & celebrate little moments like urinating without any blood coming out. Although that’s an achievement in itself, the lower abdominal pain is crucial now, more so than when there is blood coming out. I ask…
Well, if you have any rowdy cousins I’d keep them away for a few weeks after the laparoscopy. My mom had 1 of my older cousins keep an eye on me after mine and 1st thing she did when she walked in was jump right on my stomach and sit down. Ugh! I cried and cried, that was the whole reason she was asked to come over and keep an eye on me. It took a…
I feel you, mine started around 8 and a half. Didn’t know I needed to tell my mom about it, thought I was a big girl now…you know. It was a friend/cousin (married into family) that was like, um, you need to tell your mom. My mom was, okay…my baby girl isn’t a baby no more and realized no wonder we were going through so many pads now. It wasn’t…
