You have found the right person!!!
I am a chronic pain patient due to bad back, and I also suffered from adenomysis. I would wake up in the middle of the night with the worst cramps. Due to my back, I was already taking high doses of daily narcotics. That would not even touch the pain. I would also bleed very heavily....to the point where I almost could not leave my house for a day or so.
Anyway, I did end up getting a hysterectomy. BUT....I am 36, have two beautiful children, and no desire to have any more. My husband had his "procedure" a few years back
. I have to say that I an soooo happy I had the surgery. I cannot even begin to express the relief I have every month! I had the surgery 4 months ago, and I have to say, this past month I did experience some VERY slight cramps. They felt more like an upset stomach than actual cramps. My OBGYN said it is normal to experience minor mentrual symptoms.
I wish I could offer you a solution that would help your problem, besides a hysterectomy. Well, actually my OBGYN did offer the IUD implant to try and help if I chose to not get the hysterctomy. He said the hormones sometimes will help with the cramping, but it is only temporary.
You might want to post on the Womans Health Board. You will probably get more suggestions there. One last thing, I did want to touch on the whole narcotic addiction thing. There are many studies out there that show that less than 5% of chronic pain patients actually get a true addiction to narcotics. Yes, anyone who takes them for a period of time will get physically dependant on them, but that is NOT addiction. I had the same fears as you, and was sent to a pain psychologist. He helped me see thorugh all the social preconceived notions about pain killers.
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck. ANd please, check of the Womans Health Boards.
