I recently found this site and am so thankful that I have this is my first post and I have a ton of questions. I am 39 years old and as the title says I have just been diagnosed with adenomyosis. I recently had a very heavy period with huge clots that last for most of a month other symptoms have been lots of leg and lower back pain and cramping even when I'm not menstruating. I finally decided to go ahead and get the depo shot and that has helped the bleeding. Before my Dr. diagnosed me with adeno she did a D and C thinking maybe it was just a hormonal imbalance however, when she did the hysterscopy she saw it was in fact adeno. She says my uterus is very enlarged so I will need an hysterectomy. I am ok with that I am all done having children. Anyway here are the questions that I have until I see my Dr. next Friday.
Is cramping typical with adeno?
Long periods with large clots?
Any other symptoms?
Can adeno damage the ovaries?
Is adeno a precursor to lady cancers?
And for those who have had their uterus removed.
Has sex change?
How was recovery?
Is the pain gone?
Thank you for any replies!
