Suggest Treatment For Endometriosis And IBS

Hi...I have a problem of Endometriosis and IBS. I have ahd 1 laproscopy in the past. I have one child now after doing IUI. I got the problem back 1 year after my delivery. It has been 4 years now. Since last October, I am on the Hormonal therapy...Have completed 5 injections. I am taking them after every 6 weeks. But after 4 weeks or so, I start getting pain back in lower abdomen and lower back...and have to take pain killer....my doctor says that after 6 injections, we will have to take a break of 6 months....I can get my periods back during those 6 months but pain should not be there....but looking at the current situation, I think the pain will be abck...in that case, is there any other treatment that I can take since I cant take injections during that time? I am 34 Ys old.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

Antispasmodic medications as dicyclomine or drotaverine serve as the best analgesic remedy for the pain of endometriosis as well as IBS.

Possibility of intestine adhesions must be ruled out via MRI of the abdomen & pelvis keeping in mind the history of previous lap surgery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
