Natalie, I understand your pain. I used to be active on this site a few months back but had complications with my surgery to excise the endo.
Currently I have a mirena and haven't had any bleeding since October. Daily I use;
-75mg/hr  Fentanyl patch (last 3 days)
- two 40mg oxycotin
- four 5mg endone
- four 300mg Gabbapentin
- 4-8 panadol between doses as needed.

I am 21, diagnosed in June this year. Looking at another surgery early next year to excise the rest of the endo and scar tissue that has formed since the surgeries ( 7 this year, including 2 laparoscopies and 2 laparotomies)

Wow, Your on a whole slew of meds! I too had endometriosis, Diagnosed when I was 24 .  I am not sure why your Dr. would have put you on Suboxone for this though? Anyways, Can I ask how long you have had Endometriosis? And also what other treatments you have had? Have you been put on BC, Lupron injections? Any Surgeries including Uterine Ablation?
