If you follow me on Twitter you would already know I’m in Endo Land today. Riding high on the Endo Expressway with no apparent exit, yet desperately needing one. This has been going on all week, just at an understated level of pain; at a level I can tolerate. No meds, not even a heating pad were needed this week. But then this morning it felt as if my pelvis had been drop kicked into submission by the jaws of life or Jet Li making a new movie on it. It was way-too-tender and bloated. I should’ve seen this coming really. Ever since the bout of diarrhea (sorry t.m.i. – I know) I had last night that gave way to a very icky tummy feeling that just cramped all over. Then this morning, I wake up and the gates of the netherworld are open to greet me – “Hi, Endochick, it’s been awhile. Just thought we’d come and visit. Not like you’re busy today.”
But I AM busy today – I have work this afternoon and a party to host this evening. Of all days, I don’t need this! So I’m on Twitter and get some interesting advice from @missmotorcade. She says to put ice on it. I have never heard of doing this. Not once. She says the heat makes the endo bleed – which makes sense. I haven’t tried it because I had taken some pain meds and am now on mellow street, but plan on checking this “ice it” method out next time I have a chance.
Has anyone else “iced” their endo?? Not one of my gyno’s have ever suggested doing this. I wonder why.
