I have a disease called endometriosis. I was diagnosed at 19 with a surgical procedure to vurn off lesions from my endometrium wall. Typically with this condition women aren't able to have babies. It highly affects fertility. Well in 2016 I got pregnant and my son made it through the entore pregnancy. I am so grateful he is here now. Normally once a woman has a child the endometriosis pain subsides. I was so anxious to no longer be in pain after healing from the c section. However, after I had him my pain got significantly worse. A little education on the condition... It causes chronic abdomen pain as well as lower back pain on a daily basis. When you start your menstrual cycle the pain increases and it feels like a seraded blade is struck into your spinal cord and twisted constantly while having a bowel movement during the mensis. 2 weeks after your cycle during ovulation week the increased pain returns for about 10 days. But it never fully goes away. The only cure for it is to have a full hysterectomy (I am 24 years old). Over the years I have tried hydrocodone, tylenol 3, vicaprofen, and regular otc meds. When I was initially diagnose advil worked fine. But like any drug the body accustomed to it and now it seems no matter what I try - nothing works. Now here I am since I've had my son - the pain increases with every month and every cycle. Each worse than the month before. My doctor doesn't typically prescribe pain meds. But my mother had surgery on her knee a few years back and no longer has cartilage in it. She was given something called percocet 15mg. She came to me one day and gave me on one of my worsf days and it worked wonders. But she said I would have to go get my own script because she cannpt continue to supply me with hers. As i did research on the drug it looks like its pretty difficult to get. Lots of people are addicted to it and because of that doctors aren't prescribing it as often. Does anyone have any insight on how to help me convince my doctor that this is what has worked for me and its what I need? Here lately my lower bacl and upper back (where my bra stretches across) has been in excruciating pain and its getting to a point where I cant get out of bed to go to work. I hate missing out on my son. He is 7 months old tomorrow and is already crawling and mobile. I would love nothing more than to move and groove with him without having to deal with this burden. Any advice is appreciated! Thank yiu for reading!! I know its lengthy.
