My Day of Pain 8-26-16

Today has been a day of pain. I have had about two weeks of feeling good and bamb thank you pelvic pain! Courtesy of Endometriosis and Pelvic Floor Tension Myalgia. (I didn't miss you). At least despite the chronic pain that has landed me in bed all day... The crippling pain I woke up in. Has a light at the end of the tunnel! I removed my Endometriosis. So why am I in so much pain?? (I have pelvic floor tension myalgia) Now...Just gonna take some physical therapy and patience! Oh how I do not know how I lived like this for years??! I must have been a lot stronger being passed from Doctor to Doctor being told I was young, dramatic, or crazy. All to find out I was only getting worse due to time passing and not proper treatments. Proper treatments exist I am learning... (You just have to find them)  I found me some top notch pelvic pain specialists!! They specialize in pelvic pain and issues. Hence my treatment and help. (Life changing help) I was a trauma case. A TRAUMA CASE???! From being in too much pain too long. I will now always deal with being a trauma case. Did I get better and recover last time? Yes, it took about 3 long years. Do I believe it is my pain source now? Yes, I know it is looking back. Will I get better again? Yes. Why did this come back? My Endometriosis came back as it does. Causing pain which caused pelvic floor tension myalgia. Why am I in so much post surgical pain? Surgery agrivated my old trauma injury. That's normal. We aren't worried. My doctor and physical therapist has my back. Is it frusterating? Yes, but it reminds me of how much I went through. How much pain I can handle. Today my thoughts consist of one subject; "How I did this everyday for many years?!" Keep going you will get there! (If anyone has chronic pelvic pain without help or answers and want help I like to share my help... I have been going here for years and still go to: https://www.dignityhealth.org/stjosephs/services/womens-health/pelvic-pain-and-gynecologic-surgery ) I am picky when it comes to doctors.... These doctors helped me. They are specialists of a specialty. The only thing they do is Pelvic pain! (And obviously the conditions that come with that)  And they have so much to offer with compassion!! Your pain and care matters. Something I was not finding anywhere else. If you suffer from Endometriosis, living in pain is not necessary. I highly suggest them on any day! Be willing to fight for yourself!-Chelle
