i am 29. married, mother to an amazing 12yr daughter. got diagnosed with endo 2yrs ago. have had two lots of extensive key hole surgery and one laparotomy since diagnosis. strangely i have never asked or been told what stage my endo is even though i am under an endo specialist consultant. my pain is manageable because i choose now to conceal it from others and pretend with all my energy its not hurting , i have the marina coil now for 2yrs yet still bleed horrifically every month for the full 7days, have previously tried zoladex and prostap but does not alter anything.
now my next op is a hysterectomy!! 7 weeks to go. should i be happy, relieved, i know its not a cure but since my period every month is my only downfall maybe its my only solution?
i feel so lost and so angry and just incredibly confused! i am a biochemist, i know the hormone down falls, the possible future impact on my health but yet i still do not know if this is the right thing to do!
i just want someone to tell me its going to be ok. i want someone to tell me a positive story of how a hysto has improved there life, not medical facts that you get from a journal cause i already know them of reasons not to have a hysto! i am not scared to loose my womb, i am just scared it it all going to go horribly wrong
i have so many questions to ask??
