As some of you know I had a bartholin cyst and gland removed on 13 September 2016. Well it's the worst decision I've ever made.
After surgery I ended up with a hematoma as well as infections etc.
I'm now in my 17th week since surgery and still in severe pain down there 😔 my surgeon has said that it's all down to my nerve and there is possible nerve damage hence the pain, numbness, tingling, sore, burning, it's horrendous. I've been put on gabapentin since beginning of November but they've done nothing, now doctor has put me on amitriptyline to go along side the gabapentin. I hate it, I don't want to keep popping the pills especially these ones, one is for epilepsy to block the signals and the other is a mild anti depressant which apparently helps with nerve pain too so as you can imagine the sooner I'm off them the better as one of the side effects is a headache and that is true I have a constant one to this too is getting me down.
I've just started a new job so am sat down all the time which is causing it to hurt more, overall I'm peed off with the whole thing, my cyst wasn't causing any issues but I decided to get rid of it incase it grew larger but now wished I'd kept it, NOBODY said I could still be in pain nearly 5 months down the line.
Has anyone else experienced this and what if anything worked for you to get rid of the pain?
I want to start excercising again and want to be interment with my husband again, he has been so patient with me but it's so unfair on him but the way it feels at the moment I can't let him anywhere near me. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
