I finally found PAIN RELIEF!
Quick recap of my story:
I was finally diagnosed after years of EXCRUCIATING pain, blackouts, ER trips each month, misdiagnoses, etc. Had extensive surgery for my stage 4 endo, was on BC for years and years until I found out my BC created a tumor on my liver the size of my fist, had to go off BC permanently, and now I have zero treatment options.
A combination treatment therapy for the win!
I wanted to have surgery again but the surgeon said if I ever want kids, it would create too much additional internal damage. So she put on me on hydrocodone and mefenemic acid (it's a pill, don't let the word acid scare you!)
I have been on this pill combination for +10 years now and LISTEN UP!! With this pill combo, I am more or less pain free!!! No more 8 straight hours of pain so bad that I am delusional, no black outs, no vomiting while having diarrhea, none of it.
I am not one to push for pills. But they have been a TRUE LIFE SAVER!!
