Hi all, this is my first post I'm 29 and have been suffering with Endo for the last 6 years, had a lap 3 years ago to treat that and remove some adhesions to my bowel. I've now got my second lap scheduled for 30th April - after my most recent internal ultrasound my consultant has said I have a bulky uterus (where the uterus is inflamed to pregnancy size) and he thinks I have Adenomyosis, which I hadnt heard of before. Apparently 20% of Endo sufferers also have Adeno? Does anyone know any more about this, and whether this can also be treated during a lap? I know the most effective treatment is a Hysterectomy but I would like to try to have a family in the next couple of years so thats not an option for me. The pain is horrendous every day at the moment, but worse than that is the fear that I wont be able to have the family I desperately crave. Any advice is much appreciated, Kate x
