Glad to hear the surgery went well!! Boy...I wish I had this site many years ago when I had my first Lap surgery..That 'air' that stuck around for a day or two and traveled up to my shoulders and everywhere was just awful and I wasn't expecting it:(...
So MS B...thanks for sharing that info to help others.!! Gas X to the rescue!!! and stay away from eating things that cause extra gas this next week..
L..Every person with Endo has to decide what treatments they are wanting to try based on what level they are...Just please read up..if you haven't already about
Lupron and if it's worth taking at this stage...I was diagnosed with stage 4 back in the 90's...They found this after I was having ovarian cysts rupture every month...ugh!..
As well as after having 3 laps done...I had so many adhesions that they took out my Appendix the last time since it had grown everywhere and were afraid it would rupture as well..
So I actually stopped my birth control..which is known to help with Endo pain...but the cysts rupturing were so much worse for me...
Unfortunately..with all the above..along with finding a Pituitary brain tumor...I wasn't able to have any children...
I am extremely blessed that I hardly have any symptoms from the Endo anymore and little pain...
So just wanted to share that we all have different paths and hope that you find one that helps you best..
Rest up...I pray that you will find a good treatment that works so you can live a wonderful and as pain -less life as possible!!
