I have just had a Diagnostic Laproscopy and Hysteroscopy with Biopsy 4 days ago and have been told by consultant gynie that I have severe endo which has attached itself to a number of my reproductive organs, bladder and bowel. I also had a over 8cm endometrioma (chocolate Cyst) drained as he couldn't remove it as the endo was around it he had to cut some away in order to drain it. He also told me that the endo had matted and compacted. I also have 3 further endo cysts but not as large 4cm and 2cm and also a largish fibroid none of them removed. He has mentioned that because the endo is so severe that a Hysterectomy with 5cm cut along the bikini line and removal of everything apart from Cervix. I have suffered extreme painful and heavy periods with large clots for over 20 years. In 2003 I had a Diathermy of my right ovary and Laparoscopic dye test of fallopian tubes where they found a large amount of polycystic ovaries and was diagnosed with PCOS. I am 47 years old and am very very concerned about having a hysterectomy and the implications it can have, I do not have any children and do not plan having any. The worse time I get severe pelvic pain is just before my period is due, while on my period and about a week so pretty much all of the time. Has anyone had these problems and had a hysterectomy because of the severity. I'm scared about the likelihood of having one and he also mentioned ovary removal. HELP and Advice will be must appreciated I'm seeing him in a couple of weeks for post op consultation on the findings etc. He mentioned a possible hysterectomy in about 3-4 months
