I was diagnosed in 2011 with Endometriosis and a large ovarian cyst. Since then I have had 3 laparoscopies with adhesiolysis. In October 2012 I was diagnosed with stage 4 endo and needed my left Fallopian tube removed due to being damaged. At this time I was also told to expect to need a hysterectomy by the time I am 35 I am currently 31. My last lap was Aug 14 and since then I have been virtually pain free.....until 5 weeks ago I've had sudden onset of severe pain. In this time I've been prescribed codeine, diclofenac, naproxen, even sent home with bottles of oral morphine! To which none have gotten rid of my pain After several X-rays, ultrasounds and checking it was nothing else, it looks as though my endo is back, this time on my right side as well as left. I have a chocolate cyst on my right ovary which has almost doubled in size in the space of 2 weeks! And also a small cyst on my left. I can't eat without it causing pain, a full bladder also causes me pain and so does intamacy not great for a newly married couple! I have now been referred back to my consultant. I know he will ask about a hysterectomy and I know it's probably for the best, but I just can't face the thought of it
Also would it be best to have ovaries removed as well? If leaving them, I can't see the point as surely the endo will feed from the hormones? Same with HRT though?
Also do any of you know what my consultant may suggest regarding the chocolate cyst and it growing so quickly?
I would greatly appreciate any advice any of you ladies with experience could give me as I really can't see what is the best way forward for me.
