My endo is just small patches (suffered in pain since my early teens, now 32 years old and only diagnosed last year) but the pain I am in daily is extremely severe. I was on GnRH for 6 months and I was like a new person! Consultant took me off it to see if my merina coil would kick in and help the pain, if not then it will be a hysterectomy for me. Sad to say I am falling back into that horrible painful place, so looks I will get the procedure.
I asked about having it cut out etc. but he said this wouldn't help me. I have 2 brilliant children aged 9 and 4 years old and my a Husband and I have completed our family, so my worries are not linked to having more children. It's more of putting myself through the procedure and it not having an effect on the pain and I also worry about the early menopause symptoms. Also, I am overweight and I hear it is really hard to lose weight after a hysterectomy, is this true? I am working on losing it just now but not sure i will lose enough before the op.
Sorry it's so long, this is the first time I've joined any forums lol. Any help, advice or experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
