I got diagnosed in March this time last year with stage two Endometriosis/Adenomyosis which was found when the Dr. was doing a tubal and ablation for heavy periods. After surgery, he told my husband that in 3-5 yrs I could need a hysterectomy due to the fact of the Adenomyosis causing bleeding behind the ablation burn which could build up overtime. He seemed surprise that I didn't have more pain than I did. I did have a lot of cramping the first few days of my period but it was manageable with Ibuprofen. It was all the bleeding and being anemic that bothered me the most. Now Ive been getting more pain in my lower back and like a burn when cleaning up around the house. Worse of all is the excessive peeing and the feeling that I never completely empty my bladder or at times feeling like I've gotta go really bad and it only being a dribble and even worse yet is the leakage. It's just getting to the point that it's really affecting my life and I'm afraid of getting to far from a restroom for fear of having an accident or just being uncomfortable, so I go to the restroom several times before going anywhere. I don't know if this is caused by the Endo etc. and should I go back and see the gynae or go see an Urologist instead. I know the gynae is going to want to opt for a hysterectomy and I'm not sure Im ready for that. Has anybody else been in a similar situation? I'll take any advice given. Thanks!!
