Any other endo ladies dealing with a lot of nausea?? I didn’t have many problems until after my surgery but Jesus Christ. I’m so over this.

Blegh how many days into recovery are you? That anesthesia made me pretty nauseated. If it’s still bad…

Aw man that’s been a while then. Mine was in March, but then like two weeks ago I was nauseated day in and day out so much that I thought I was pregnant. If it is really bad I’m sure your doctor can prescribe something for it, but anti-nausea meds tend to make me dizzy and sleepy, and if you work that’s a problem. Maybe try candied ginger and camomile tea, or peppermint. Idk I just hate the shitty weird side effects from endometriosis that all come together to a fabulous cluster of crap.

If it’s still bad you can always call your doctor and say you’re still nauseated and see if they can call something in. There’s nothing worse than being in pain except for being in pain and feeling like you’re going to barf.

Oh for god sake why am I googling stuff about surgery. I am so nervous. What if they cut me open and find no endo? But something worse? What if I am covered with it and I can’t have children? I am SUCH a worry wart but I am so scared. I have never had surgery. Ever. What does it feel like when they give you the anaesthetic? I think I’m worrying even more because someone at works daughter just had the same surgery and it went wrong and she almost died. This doesn’t help!! :(

Deep breaths. It doesn’t do you any good to worry about the unknown. What will happen will happen, and that’s okay. A laparoscopy will lead to answers. Nothing’s there? Awesome! You’ve ruled out one thing and can keep testing. Something’s there? Fantastic! You know what’s happening inside of your body and are one step closer to treatment. Your surgeon will be skilled and knowledgable and will help you to their best capabilities.

Your anesthesiologist will give you something through your IV before you go in for surgery that will help you relax. You’ll probably feel pretty calm going in there. I remember once they put the oxygen mask on me, I felt a little funny, and then I woke up. My anesthesiologist was my favorite person through the whole surgery experience - their job is to keep you safe and pain free, and you can trust them to do it.

I know it’s tempting to google every thing possible about the surgery and the experience, I was the same way. Sometimes it’s okay to let go and take a break and care for yourself. In the end, it will be okay.

I’ve tried four different muscle relaxers with no help at all. If the definition of crazy is trying the same thing and hoping for a different result, it’s time to switch directions.

Next weekend I get to try acupuncture. I am really hopeful that it will help release my muscles and ease my pain. Has anyone else found relief with it?

Please. Please help. I am going crazy.

I cannot hear one more piece of “maybe” or “possibly” again. I refuse to make plans on a possibility. I deserve security.

Some days when I look at the endometriosis tag we’re all doing good and feel like we’re on the upswing or at least are managing our lives okay.

But today, everyone is in the pits grasping for spoons and wondering if they’ll ever find relief.

I just want to say you are not alone, and that it’s perfectly okay to climb into bed at the end of the day and cry it out. I am tired and worn down and so over it. Every day is a fight, and sometimes, we’re not the victors. Life happens. It just happens a little differently for all of us.
