Hello everyone! I think this is my first post here on the Chronic pain forum because even though I do suffer from chronic pain from my Ulcerative Colitis (and a few other problems) I never really posted on here - mainly because I am not so bad - pain wise that it interfers with my daily functions. But I have a question for the ladies if you don't mind me asking?
I have always had extremely painful periods and it wasn't until recently that I started to get such severe pain that I would almost fall to my knees in agony. It was that sort of pain that sent me to the GYN to find out the cause. 2 weeks ago I had a D&C, laproscopy and hysto - something or other (I can never remember what its called!) but it's a scope. He didn't find any cause for my pain - no fibroids, no tumors, no polyps, no endo. But since I've had the D&C, the constant cramping has ceased (which is a blessing for sure!). Because I'm 37 and not having any more children, the doc recommended that I have the Novasure Endometrial Ablation done to help control the amount of bleeding and pain during that time of month. Maybe even end my periods all together.
So I was wondering if any of you ladies have had this procedure done and if so, can you share your experience? Did you have much pain afterwards? Did it help you? If you suffered from horrid cramps, did it help it any? Any thing you guys can tell me would be highly appreciated! I just want to know whats going to happen and the procedure date is set for October 16th.
