Hello. I’m new here, but I’m not sure where to go to for this. I have debilitating endometriosis pain and ibuprofen and Tylenol don’t seem to do much. I just had a laparoscopic cyst/ scar tissue removal last month and I want to know if:
- is it normal for your next period to be just as bad as the pain from before the surgery if they took stuff out?
- are there any effective ways to handle the pain other than opiates and Tylenol?
- if you are someone who finds you need opiates even with hormones, how did you advocate for yourself?
- for people who are incapacitated like me for 1-2 days a month, how do you tell employers?
