Major bummer. My Endofemm heating pad has finally, after nearly 4 years of constant usage, bit the dust. And I’m mourning it’s loss in a mega way.
I first wrote about it in this post My Endofemm…. gaaaaawwwww *sigh*. That’s when I bought the pad. I use it for all sorts of discomforts — not just endometriosis! My husband has even used the pad.
While heating it this morning — for spleen pain (my spleen’s been bothering me since the solumedrol IV’s in May) — I smelled a burning smell. I figured I was having a seizure and carried on.
Then, after using the pad, I noticed what looked like the remnants of kernel fragments — burnt kernels — all over my couch when I stood up. I thought this was from my multi grain toast (I’m can be rather messy, okay!), so I casually brushed the crumby things away and reheated the pad. That’s when I noticed an even stronger burning smell. This time I was sure this wasn’t a seizure burning smell and was, in fact, coming from the microwave because it was really strong.
What I found was a burnt hole in the fabric of my Endofemm pad! A hole! 😦 Now I’m without my favorite portable heating pad. Sucks. Sucks. Sucks.
