My Endometriosis Update

I was able to see my doctor on last Thursday.  He is so kind, gentle and understanding.  Well, it looks like I am going back on the Depot Lupron to stop my endometriosis.  I thought that I had a fever back when I saw him but may not have actually had a fever like I thought.  My body may have been trying to fight off the endo and it may have felt like I had a fever because of that. But, now I am positive that I have a fever, as the thermometer says so.  My pain has been pretty dang bad on and off depending on what I do.  I am looking forward to getting the shot this Thursday and getting some relief for my pain.  I am also supposed to get a sonogram to make sure it isn't anything besides endo.  I am thinking positive and hoping that I will be pain free soon. Thanks for listening.

Have you been on Lupron before then? What was your response to it?

Teresa said...

Endochick, Thanks for stopping by. How are you doing?

My first session I took two doses which lasted 6 months. It helped, but my system got screwed up when I took progesterone(I think that's what I took)in order to get my period back and for some reason my system went out of whack.

Most recently, I only took one dose (3 months dose) and I was pain free for about 5-6 months.

There are times when I feel like I have a fever too, my entire body aches EVERYWHERE and it's only the cramps that are the worst pain. My cramps are so bad it hurts to walk. I literally feel your pain :( so sorry!
