The pain that never ends

Hi my name is Rebecca 17 years old. It all started when i first got my period they became really painful and heavy I was repeatedly going to the drs to ask for help as I was missing out on school and other social activities. I had been told I had a pendicitous, I was taken to hospital to be sent home and told I didn’t have one and then it was a hernia which wasn’t true. In the end I was put on the depo injection to stop the bleeding and told You will grow out of it we can’t find anything wrong. I hardly had pain until 2 years ago and I would get the depo every 2 months instead of 3 and it became worse so I tried the jadelle. I also have urine infections all the time. I ended up moving towns and my new doctor was amazing she got onto the problem straight away I was declined from gynae as there wasn’t enough evidence which my doctor pushed and I ended up having a lot of trips to the hospital and nothing much was done until I had an ultrasound appointment and I was taken into surgery that day as I had blood trapped inside my uterus. After that a few months later I had a laparoscopic booked to see what was going on. As time went by I had my appointment and they found endometriosis all over my pelvis and on my bladder and ovarys. I also had my jadelle removed and the Mirena inserted to see if it would help with my bleeding. It has now been over a month since my operation and I have had a lot more severe pain. It feels like I am being stabbed in the vagina and lower stomach. I ended up in ED unable to move much as the pain was so horrible I was in over night waiting on an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed more blood trapped inside my uterus which my mirena had moved and was now floating. Also there is a 3cm cyst on my ovary I ended up being discharged and sent home in pain still. I am now waiting on a doctors appointment to see what’s happening with me as I’m in so much pain still. I am also waiting for a specialist appointment for the next step of removing then endo. I feel really upset and depressed as my life has been put on hold a I’m always in pain. My education is really important to me but I find it hard to attend class and I am getting behind in a lot of things.

  1. As a Mother it is heart breaking to have your daughter whom you would give anything to protect in pain. Pain you can’t take away. Pain that you know will return. The light dimming in that once effervescent young woman. Trying anything and everything. Waiting on lists and waiting for the pain to pass. Women with endometriosis are heroes. Facing everyday the uncertainty of is this a good day or a bad day. I salute you all. One day there may even be a non invasive cure. Take heart be proud. You are warrior women .
