I had endometriosis aged 18 and had surgery, lazer excision, followed by 6 months of Zoladex injections. I have since had my two children and now aged 25 find that my symptoms have come back with vengence. I am due to see a consultant next month and am hoping to ask for a hysterectomy as I have had my children, do not want anymore, I also do not want to have to suffer like this for the rest of my days. I want quality of life, a career and to be able to just enjoy myself which I really cannot do now.
I currently get severe pain when ovulating, causes diarrhea and vomiting, then I bleed a few days before my period, then have my period which is very heavy and lasts at least a week. Also very painful. I am in pain for at least 2 weeks every month to the extent I can be bedridden at times. Sex is painful and so is toileting.
Over time my symptoms are getting worse. I currently am prescribed tramadol, diclofenac and tranexamic acid all of which help slightly.
I would really like a full hysterectomy as then I can hopefully draw a line under it and move on in my life.
I am just wondering really what my chances are of getting the hysterectomy really? Any help or advice would be great as I have already lived with endo for about 8 years now and am not prepared to carry on!
