Hi, I've just had my two week follow up after excisional surgery. This was my second surgery after being diagnosed 6 years ago. My specialist wants me to try vissane. I'm very reluctant as I have tried 3 different pills in the past all of which made me severely depressed and non functional. It took me a long time to feel like my normal self after these experiences. I got the impression that my specialist thinks my endo will likely return and progress unless I take hormones to suppress it. So now just feeling really guilty, that I have made this decision and if I become symptomatic it's my own fault. Also feeling like I have to choose between pain or depression/mania. Are there any ladies out there with severe endo who have chosen to abstain from hormones? And.. Which drugs have you tried?
