New to the group, not sure if its a forum for men but could really do with some help, my daughter has had Endomitriosis for a number of years and has managed to get it mainly in control (other than about a week each month where she still suffers) My wife has suffered with symptoms for about 6 months now, shes recently seen the specialist and had biopsys which we are waiting for results on and have a scan in the pipeline, apparently with here being older it is a different set of problems from my daughter who started with some injections that she can take for a number of months to give here some releif and works well for her,
I am being told that for my wife (47) this is not an appropriate treatment due to potential complications (breast cancer, menapause and osteo perosis)
My wife is now in pain all month which intensifies for one week of the month, pain killer dont seem to touch it and shes getting very down and depressed. I have bought them both heat pads which does help a little but feel completely useless, we havent really had any guidance on pain relief for her, she is already gluten free as she has an intollerence which doesnt help, Im not looking for a magic solution but any tips you have would be much appreciated.
My family means the world to me and my wife is the type who always puts herself last (whe probably suffered to long before seeing the doctors) Shes tried Co-Codamol, My Naproxyn and the usual Iboprofen and Parcetamol. Ihave just joined so will have a look through all the posts in here but if there are any quick wins out there let me have them ;-)
Appreciate your help
