Hi there, hope this is finding you all as well as possible <3
I have had serious issues with my periods since I started having them at the age of 10. Incredibly heavy bleeding (vaginal and from the back passage. Something I always put down to my Von Willerbrands a blood clotting disorder) where I would have to have a shower in the middle of the night as I was a mess, incredibly painful not just during my period but throughout, clots, horrid lower backpain amongst all the other joyous symptoms! I was finally diagnosed with endo at the age of 19, I am now 29. After many years of Prostap injections, numerous operartions (last one taking 4 hours as many organs etc were being pulled together) I have been incredibly blessed to have just had a beautiful daughter. As my surgeon said, an utter miracle. Now, for years every doc I have seen have told me because of the severity of my endo, I will have to have a hystorectomy one day. Even after being pregnant (which can help), being back on the prostap injections, my endo is here back with an absolute vengence. Already been given Oramorph on prescription for pain (unreal) and bleeding so heavy even on injections... The day has come where I have to make a decision. Do I go on with this horrendous disease praying one day i'll have another baby one day, admit that even the thought of trying (especially so soon as our baby is 16 weeks old) is just too soon or do I have a hystorectomy and get rid of the horrid thing as coming upto 20 years is long enough now? All advice and opinions welcome as I am in complete turmoil.
So sorry it's a long one, this is the shortened version!
Many thanks, Mrs T <3
