Now that I've scared away the boys...... Some poor few of you have followed the saga of my pain over the past few years. It's pain in my lower right abdominal quadrant that is EXCRUCIATING! Last year, I spend most of the year in pain, and trying to find various OTC and prescription pain medication that worked. Nothing. No Vicodin, no Extra Strength Vicodin, Dilaudid, nothin. Two years ago, I had fibroids removed from my uterus. Last year, I had exploratory surgery, which really only found that my left ovary had adhered itself to the uterus, and my reproductive organs were shaped like "I'm a little teapot." So, I got that fixed. Didn't help the pain. I did 6 months of Lupron, which is essentially a shot that puts you into chemical menopause. No pain, no periods. Life was good. I stopped taking it in February (it's only a 6-month course), and three weeks ago, the pain came back. (The day after I went for a bikeride for the first time in, like, 30 years I might add....coincidence? I think not....no more exercise for me!) The doctor has diagnosed endometriosis. It also impacts my digestive system in ways I won't describe here. I'm not 100% sure that the pain isn't something in my lower digestive system, but the Lupron kept me pain free for 9 months, so the statistical likelihood is endo. So, after that boring and exhaustive explanation, I approach this community of power women with the following question: Has anyone had any luck holding off endo symptoms (pain) with diet changes? Natural remedies? Alcohol? I'm scheduled for a hysto on 7/2, but if someone has another great idea, I'm all ears! Shpanks!
