Hi firstly sorry about my spelling
i have had a first lap in April and surface endo was cut from think rectum , uterosacrial ligaments and behind ovary, but letter after lap said that biopsy showed I have adenomyosis so my uterus is swollen and sore pressing on bowel and bladder which make sense with my symptoms. When I came around also Gyne said she thought I would need a hysterectomy leaving ovaries.
Feeling no better maybe worse since lap , bowel and bladder pain getting worse I was put on pill after lap which made me v depressed and pain the same. Also was offered coil which I refused and going to be offered chemical menopause but adenomyosis from my understanding can only be halted by hormones the only 'cure' is hysterectomy?
My thoughts are that I will refuse the chemical hormones as they make me so down and pain the same as uterus is already swollen and was going to go for the hysterectomy I am 41 so leaving ovaries. Am awaiting gyne appointment which has been moved again til end of September now
but when I spoke to my GP she said that practically all ovaries left after hysterectomy fail within 5 years and most within a year ?? So I would most likely end up on HRT.... I would like to know anyone elses experience of this ?
