Today I had my 6 week follow up for my laparotomy on Feb. 17. They just looked at my incisions and prescribed my Depo-Provera. I told her about my continued, lasting pain with this past period as well as the continuing irregular BM/diarrhea. The doctor wasn't too interested in discussing those problems, just telling me about the Depo-Provera shot. I told her I wasn't sure about it and may wait a few cycles before taking it. Still haven't made up my mind.

Sounds like you need another doctor. I would be PISSED if my doctor dismissed the pain. Get another opinion.

The problem is that I'm on a hospital wide insurance plan where I only have to pay 20% of the cost if all of my care is done through that hospital. Right now I don't want to be on any hormones or meds so I don't have a reason to go to the doctor. However, I definitely will check in about my doctor's experience with endometriosis and finding someone who has more experience treating the disease. Thanks for the support!
