Hi, I really hope that you will be able to get off all your pain meds easily and comfortably!
I joined this site for support with chronic pain due to a lawnmower accident, however, i am currently recovering from a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy (ovaries, tubes, uterus, cervix and my appendix). I suffered with severe endo all my life and also with chronic ovarian cysts. My endo would attach to organs and make soooo much pain. I had many surgeries to clean it out and used tons of meds to try to stop it to. I finally decided to have a hysterectomy. Pathology diagnosed stage 4 endo, 5 cysts on the one working ovary i had, and adenomyosis, which is where the endometrial lining grows straight into the uterus. My ob/gyn said it was the second worse case he had ever seen in his career......right now im still in a ton of pain from surgery, and still feeling bad, but i know i will be thankful in the long run....
i hope you find some relief and good luck w/ getting off your meds!
