I am 28 years old. My endometriosis was misdiagnosed for 15 years. As a result, I have stage 4 endometriosis, which is extremely debilitating. I have had 3 surgeries in as many years, tried narcotics and hormone therapy, had an unsuccessful cycle of IVF, all to no avail. My activities of daily living are severely affected by the pain, which affects my lower-back, legs, abdomen and pelvis. I suffer from dysuria and often even bowel movements are painful. I often have bouts of nausea and at times even vomit as a result of the pain. I have to wait a few months before my gynae will try to insert the Mirena, since the last time he tried, my uterus was perforated and I haemorrhaged. I have tried Zoladex, Danogen, Yasmin, Triphasil, Voltaren, Tramal, Celebrex and Cimbalta. Morphine was most successful in bringing fast and effective pain relief, but it is no longer an option. What can I use to manage the pain, so that I can improve my quality of life?
