Help Does Anyone Understand

I have been suffering from endometriosis since i was a teenager. Now I am almost thirty I have been through two surgeries. This is my second go at the lupron depot. This lupron stuff is crazy it puts u through menopause. I have been in so much pain for so many years and now it is worse. I am on the shot plus several medications. And recently i have had a steroid injection. I am tired and in pain all the time. Its so hard for the people around me to understand what I'm going thru.

Hello, I'm new here and I have just been reading about others experiences, it's kind of scary to read about because I am not sure what to expect. I was diagnosed yesterday (9/15/10) and I have already had 1 "excision of mass" in March of this year. I know there is more to come and I'm not ready for it. Hope you do well with your treatment in the future.

Anyone with Endometriosis, cysts. should read, Recipes for the Endometriosis Diet by Carolyn Levett... Diet really has a great impact on endo pain but doctors don't have a clue about this! The diet takes time but periods get better... please don't resort to a hysterectomy!
