Very many patients that have endometriosis who are being prescribed opioids, and it seems that people are not aware of the real danger behind the medicine, not even some doctors.
Doctor Georgine Lamvu, at a conference for gynecologic surgeons, stated that she and her colleagues were talking about the pros and cons of multiple surgeries for those who have endometriosis.
What is Endometriosis?
Not many people know about Endo (short for endometriosis) – it is a painful disorder that happens when endometrial-like cells actually grow outside the womb. The disease is also referred to as “the most common disease you’ve never heard of.” It has an impact on 1 out of 10 women, and it is known to be one of the reasons that cause female infertility around the world.
We still have no cure, and also no long-term treatment for this disease. There are many cases in which a person has to go through a lot of surgeries in order to treat the disease, but it is still in vain.
Treatment with Opioids Against Endometriosis
Doctor Lamvu stated at the conference that there are many people who take opioids. A surgeon said to her that they are not using opioids in order to treat these patients. She said she wanted to find out the truth. But she knew that opioids are used in order to treat chronic pain patients, even if regulations are stricter.
In tine, opioids have become one of the most common treatments out there for chronic panic in the U.S. they are useful for acute and short cases, but in the long run, it will make more bad than good.
