Endometriosis is a common medical condition where the tissue lining the uterus is found outside of the uterus, typically affecting other organs in the pelvis. The condition can lead to serious health problems, primarily pain and infertility. A major symptom of endometriosis is pain, mostly in the lower abdomen, lower back, and pelvic area.

    So I have surgery next week, this will be my 5th one. I'm trying to make it through the week without calling the doctor but my period just started early. I'm in so much pain from my hips up to my chest and down my legs. Every time I stand up I pour out blood. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to control this? I have been using pain meds and a heating pad but I am still miserable.
