I have been fighting endometriosis for years. It finally got so bad it was severly affecting my life with no relief from pain pills or treatment. My doctor decided to do surgery in January and removed all she could see but being atypical endo and clear she could not find it all. Two months after the surgery I was still in severe pain and thinking nothing was going to help. She decided to put me on Lupron injections and force my body into menopause. Well, they actually have worked. I wish I hadn't had the surgery and just did the injections! I feel so much better. I don't have any pain at all. I've been able to work out, eat better and be much more active! Due to the menopause I've had some bad emotional issues (moodiness, forgetfulness, etc) and my husband hates his wife going thru menopause at 30 but feeling this good is worth it! I can only take the injections for 6 months. I hope the pain doesn't come back when I am done because it has made such a great difference. In just 2 months I have lost almost 20 lbs! I'm feeling great for the first time in a long time!!!
