I’m in so much pain. What do I do?

So I had two kids via c-section . I’m told within the last few months I have endometriosis and ovarian cyst. I am in so much pain, I can’t even sleep with my partner. I swell up to the point I can’t even urinate often. What do I do? I don’t have a family to watch kids even if I had surgery. I’m so stressed.

    @A.LR217 , Thank you so much for reaching out. You are certainly not alone. I know many community members have described this pain and difficulties with sex. I’m so sorry you’re experiencing this as well. Have you had a chance to ask your doctor about what you can do regarding the pain and swelling?? I hope some community members will chime in with some personal experiences that might help. In the meantime, I wanted to share some articles with you that I hope will be insightful, as well.
