My Gyno just advised me today that with the Depo shot not working the way it should for me ( I have had 5 shots now, and month long bleeding every other month), that I should have a hysterectomy. She says my quality of life is suffering (duh) and that she wouldn't have made it as long as I have like this, she would have ripped everything out by now. I asked her how is a Hysterectomy suppose to help with endometriosis? She said that it helps by not having me bleed every month to set off my endo spots. Now this is where I am confused. It has nothing to do with my "uterus minions" as they are outside of the uterus. I have had a lap in January where they discovered I have Stage 3 (moderate) endo. But my best friend said that most places are saying that if you get the uterus removed, there is a less likely chance of new endo spots because she believes in the retrograde theory.
So, I just would like to know if the removal of my uterus would really help in any way, shape, or form of the endo pain.
