Endometriosis?

Apr 13, 2019 7:24 AM

Can anyone tell me about their experiences of being diagnosed with endometriosis? I'm starting the process of finding out if endo is what's causing my chronic pain :(

It's been years ago but my endometriosis caused me severe cramping and heavy irregular cycles. The doctor put me on BC which helped. I've had 8 surgeries in my abdomen & pelvic regions over a 25 year period, 3 major, and endometriosis has been present every time (even after they removed my uterus & even up around my gallbladder. My sister needed surgery to clean out all in her pelvic region just to get pregnant. I'm sending you hugs love and prayers! 🙂❤🙏🌼

Thanks for sharing your experience. What is BC? I currently have to take up to 240mg of codeine a day to be able to function through my cycle and it's hardly enough anymore :(
