Thanks Kayleigh1985, I said my only regret was leaving an ovary in place
My sister in law had a complete hysterectomy around the same time as I did and she has not had any further complications that I know of with Endometriosis returning. I am kicking myself in the butt for not listening to the sis in law ... to remove everything ..
I will find out what the surgeon has to say when she evaluates me on the 17th . She is the same surgeon that did my corrective surgery back in 1996. Then I had my children , my son, he will be 18 in Jan and youngest daughter in 1998 she will be 17 in Dec . So they are almost all grown up now .. The two concerns I have are the Endo being on my sciatic nerves ( I have no uterus ) so where does the endo go from an ovary left in place but to other places ( could I have permanent nerve damage ? ) .. and women with Endo have a higher risk of developing DVT ... a scary thing if left without medical treatment and close monitoring ..
Not sure how soon she would schedule a lap after I see her but just depends .. You take care too and I will definitely update the ladies on here and you as to when and what I find out ..
I am a tough cookie so I will keep my chin up .. Oh and my oldest daughter has twins so I am a grandma to identical twin girls as well so they keep my spirits up .. too I have changed my diet but I still suffer ... and take supplements , I even started taking digestive enzymes to help .. as well .. I am 49 now almost 50 , and still dealing with Endo . I do not suffer with hot flashes either since I started taking another supplement to keep them at bay .
