I have been referred by my consultant for an MRI (this friday). Slightly worried as I suffer with claustrophobia and never had an MRI. (needs must though!).
He has said that I either have another course of zoladex (I've had 3 months and the pain is still here), go on the pill until I decide to have a hysterectomy or have my ovaries (plus more) removed soon.
I am 37 years old and due to PCOS and Endo not had a successful pregnancy (We have 3 beautiful adopted children).
I have asked what stage endo I have (I had a lap last year that diagnosed the endo) and where it is but not been given the answers. I was told I need an MRI.
What are your experiences? Do you have any advice on which path I should take?
Also I am constantly ill. I have put it down to adopting our 2 1/2 year old a year and a half ago and picking up lots of bugs but whereas everyone else has a cold and moves on I seem to get infections. I was very ill with a lung infection over Christmas. I've had labyrinthitis a month or so ago. I've had a cold for 3 weeks now and it's developed into sinusitis.
I've seen a nutritionist that's recommended I take lots of supplements and I try to eat healthily (albeit when I get down I turn to choc and bics). I also joined a gym (exercise classes) a couple of months ago and exercise 4-5 times a week (when well!) including once a week yoga.
Do you think the illness etc.. is linked to endo?
Any advice from your experiences would be gratefully received.
Thank you for reading. xox
