I had a laparoscopy for stage 4 endo last year and it has sadly not given any relief. I have tried a number of different 'pills' to try and resolve symptoms of pain, bleeding and fatigue but the whole thing seems to just keep getting worse. I am on a special diet, I do exercise when i can, I have tried alternative therapies, I am all about the 'fix what you can for yourself' attitude, but it has finally hit me that no matter what i do or try this isn't getting better and my quality of life is getting steadily worse. I am obsessed by my endo.
I've started reading about hysterectomy and it sounds like a good option for me. I don't want children of my own and would happily adopt or foster if that changed in the future. I'm only 29 so i know my surgeon will have his reservations on that alone, but I just wanted to hear from anyone who is happy to share their experience of hysterectomy and if it has helped their symptoms.
I think it will be a bit more complicated for me if i do go ahead because my bowel is still stuck to the back of my womb and they left it so as to not risk the need for colostomy.
I am seeing my specialist again next month to talk everything through as well as trying prostap but i also get the impression that prostap is a worse experience than full hysterectomy!
