Hi everyone. I posted some time ago looking for people's experiences of having a total hysterectomy with tubes and ovaries removed. Thanks for the responses. I'm still waiting for my date but looking forward to surgery. I have also just had some news from an ultrasound scan that there appears to be a blockage in my right ureter and kidney. I expected it to be honest, as I have had increasing pains down the right hand side of my back over the last year and had an abnormal renal function blood test as part of my routine over 40s health check.
Just wanted to check, has anyone else had blocked or damaged ureters or kidneys with their endo? And if so, what sorts of options have you had? I am waiting to have an MRI scan and further discussions with my very good consultant, but not quite sure what to expect. Maybe stents put in the ureter when they go in to do the hysterectomy? Or would they actually consider removing a kidney if damaged? Always so many questions with this disease!
Value hearing from anyone whose gone through something similar.
Take care everyone xx
