Hey guys I'm new to this site but sadly not new to Endo.
I was officially diagnosed over 16yrs after the drs first mentioned the idea of endo.
I had my first lap in Sept 2012 after getting so bad that I done nothing but lie down and cry a lot. They removed cysts from both ovaries, one 8cm the other 10cm. I got about 6 months pain relief then the pain started to slowly come back. It started to come in unbearable bounts a few months ago and it's now reached the point where it's only a short time away from being back to how I was before the first lap.
I've been back to the gynecologist and they found more cysts on only my left ovary with a size of roughly 6cm. I'm just waiting on the letter to say when they will get up close and personal with my insides again.
The first time around I made the conscious decision not to have anything to possibly prevent the endo, I wanted to see if it would come back and how quickly. I'm now cursing my curiosity but what is done is done.
This time I want to try and prevent it coming back, or getting so bad. I've been offered the mirena coil or Zoladex I think was the name of the other thing.
I'm wondering which would be best, I've never had anything like the pill etc because of a history of migraines so it's all new territory for me.
Does anyone have experience with either/both?
Sorry for the ramble
