I have stage 4 endo mainly on my bowel. It was discovered after a ruptured ectopic in 2014. I've had a laparoscopy post this & my consultant was very honest & said I needed to either have hormone treatment or full surgery with probable bowel resection as I have large nodules (he admitted he wasn't keen on performing surgery on me!!) I've tried northisterone at different doses & mini pill cerrelle but get really bad low moods & anger, fatigue to the point I can't get out of bed, ibs symptoms & still having rectal bleeds. My gp recommended combined pill but I'm 38, bmi of 30 & family history of heart disease which are all risk factors. He recommended I ask for my ovaries to be removed & go on hrt rather than medical induced menopause with 3 monthly injections. It all terrifies me as I'm seem to be sensitive to hormones & scared I will be just as bad on hrt!!! This is all affecting me & I don't think I'm much fun to live with & I have a 4 year old. Anyone had experiences of this? I feel so lost were to go.
