Hi there! I was diagnosed last Friday after a really difficult couple of years. I had my uterus removed in Nov 2012 as I had adenomyosis. I won't go into all the details as its so long but in brief had a perforated gall bladder, kidney stones of unusual composition and all last year chronic bladder and pelvic pain and urinary frequency day and night. I have been batted between gynae and urology the entire year. I was beginning to accept the prospect that this was Interstitial Cystitis as my gynae diagnosed, the laparoscopy only occurred to discount the urologists theory of endo as I was still bleeding substantially every month, so thankful now that I know what I'm dealing with. It's all over my bladder, cervix and right pelvis I have been excised and cauterised. I'm waiting for my follow up and crammed this week as I knew very little about endo. My gynae said it will be a drug treatment to put me in a menopausal state then he will remove my cervix. My question is, is that enough I'm bothered by what I've read that my ovaries are being left although I won't have a cervix or uterus? Grateful for any advice!! Very confused! Lx
