For almost 15 years #endo compromised my social, professional, personal life and mental health. I’m more than lucky to have found great professionals along my way, but it’s never over. It’s a daily struggle that has no cure #MoreThan1in10 @Endofound @SWHR #EndometriosisAwareness
In my case, #endo represents almost 15 years of fatigue, excessive bleeding, visits to the ER in the middle of the night, tons of painkillers, multiple failed treatments, thousands of $ spent and endless sleepless nights in pain #morethan1in10 @Endofound @SWHR
2022 was the year I went to my doctor’s office and told him I couldn’t it anymore, I needed stronger painkillers. His answer: “you’re already taking the strongest pain relievers, the next thing would be opioids and I won’t let you go there”. @SWHR @Endofound #morethan1in10

In honor of Endometriosis awareness month I’m shedding light on a disease that affects more than 10% of women around the world.
Not many people know but in February of 2020 I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis after years of suffering and doctors dismissing my concerns. Before I was diagnosed I didn’t know anyone with this condition
This past February, I had my second laparoscopy surgery and through it all I thank God and am super appreciative of all the support I received from friends and family during my recovery process.

I know some women with #Endometriosis have had bad experiences with male OB-GYNs, but it was a male physician who finally suspected endometriosis when I ended up in the emergency room in so much pain. The several women OB-GYNs I had seen prior did not take my pain seriously. /1
I saw my first female OB-GYN not long after I started menstruating, because I was in enormous amounts of pain every time I had my period, curled up in the fetal position, unable to function, missing school. I was told this was "normal" and given anaprox. /2
Anaprox didn't help much. I'd end up spending hours in a hot bath in a vain attempt to control the pain. My periods were also extremely heavy and very irregular. I was told that was "normal" - things would settle down in time. The first OB-GYN I had seen then retired. /3

Morning Twitter! I'm Magda Marečková, Ri Digital Intern and PhD student @UniofOxford @Ox_wrh where I study the endometrium cell-by-cell 🔬

I'm taking over @Ri_Science this morning to talk about endometriosis #endometriosisawareness

A thread (1/14)⬇️
@UniofOxford @Ox_wrh Imagine you would suffer from pain that feels like razor blades inside your abdomen. It feels like being cut and burnt from within
@UniofOxford @Ox_wrh You cannot go to school or work for 3-4 days. Each month. The pain really drains you, both physically and mentally. Painkillers do not help
