@flyingbob Oh my goodness. My pain is nothing like what you describe but I also never want it to get to this point. I sometimes have abdominal pain during my period and I feel like it may be worse due to endo but I do not know for sure. That sounds incredibly debilitating. My heart pours out with empathy for her!
I'm with you and think a second opinion may be a good idea.
She is a friend of us, so i wasn’t in the situation to council, in fact, most of the things i heard after the surgery. Because her Husband told me. But in any case, i’ve learnend to tell my observations, so like here and now.
