I Just Want My Life Back

In 2004 I gave birth to my second and finale child. I had my tubes tied about a month later.  In October of that year, I started to experience pain like nothing I had ever felt before. My PCP sent me to 3 GYN's, 2 of which insisted there was nothing wrong with me, and no way I could be in as much pain as I was telling them. The 3rd decided I should have exploratory surgery to look for endometriosis. After which he informed me I had no signs, but he'd like me to take a medication for it any way. I stopped seeing him, and found my 4th GYN, who after examining me decided I should have some tests done. Between him and my PCP I have had every test imaginable! Finally after an ultrasound it was discovered I had a cyst on my left ovary. The GYN decided I should have the ovary removed, to prevent the cyst from coming back. Almost 8mths later I was still having pain but now on my right, so he decided to remove that ovary. During that operation, he discovered that I had scar tissue that was attaching to different parts of my body IE: my intestine and uterus etc. so he removed my uterus as well. Yet I am still in constant pain. Several ultra sounds and CT scans have determined that I have a remnant of my right ovary left, and once again a cyst has developed. I am in so much pain that some days I just lay in bed, and take my meds and sleep, because its the only time I'm not in pain (since I'm asleep) I've tried working sporadically, but eventually I just can't pretend like I'm ok. I've been sent to a general surgeon who says since its a remnant of my ovary, they can't do anything, I've been sent back to m GYN who says the same, and my insurance refuses to let me have an other surgery any way. I am only 26yrs old, and I am scared every day that its not just a cyst, that they are missing something, and I'm going to end up dieing. I have 2 biological children who are 8 and 5, and I have 4 step children between the ages of 18 and 9. Two of which I am the only mother they have. I hate that my kids worry about me, I hate that I can't support them, and I hate that I often can't even enjoy simple things with them. I am at a loss right now. My husband has been wonderful, but he is fully disabled due to a back injury that has left him to in chronic pain. He handles most everything with our children, and simple tasks around the house.  Does anyone out there have ANY advice for me? I'm so sick of being medicated like I am, and nothing else that has been done works. I just want my life back and to be able to enjoy my family!!!

Please dont think Im being rude, but have you ever heard of homeopathy? www.abchomeopathy.com It is a holistic natural form of medicine. Im saying this as I think it can help you, I have just been diagnosed with what they think is a cyst on my ovary to, I will be using homeopathy as my form of treatment as I believe in it so very much, Im in constant pain, huge distended tummy, pain during sex, and going to the toilet, bleeding in-between periods a lot, extremely tired and irritable. I will let you know how my treatment goes.

I feel your pain because I have it every day of my life I have almost the same situation you do. I have a history of endometriosis and recently had 5 cysts removed from my ovaries, the doctor thought this was the cause of my pain but iam still in diableing pain every day. I can't work I can't go to dinner with my friends, or go on a walk with my sisters. My quality of life is horrible and I had the same thing doctors not believing me and its emotionally draining as week. We need to find out where this pain comes from because I cannot live like this any longer!
