I read alot of the posts on here and didnt even realise how bad stage 4 endo can be. Surprisingly my daughter has only just been diagnosed with it at the age of 20. She has had pain but not excruciatingly so. She also has type 1 diabetes and just gets on with life...she is training to be a solicitor.
However the news that she has 3 large chocolate cysts on both ovaries with the risk that she may have to go into surgical menopause has floored me (and her but she pushes the worry away I think).
She has a date for an operation in August on NHS but with that op, they think it involve invasive surgery and she may have an oopherectomy!
I investigated this as she has so much to deal with in life anyway and came up with Mr Trehan and his successes. We had a private appointment with him in Harley Street and the date has now come up for surgery with him next week in Yorkshire. We do not have private health cover but will pay the £10k plus to get this done.
I only hope Im making the right decision for her. Obviously there is no guarantee with his procedure but I'll be darned if I let her future happiness be threatened if I can possibly help it. She has to go back for her last year at uni in September and the worry that she may have other problems to deal with on top is too much for me.
