I had surgery 4 years ago and was told that I had endo in the pod area which attached my uterus to my bowel. My consultant was unable to remove it as risk of damage to the bowel. (I have since discovered the hospital was not a BGCE - I didn't know they existed).
I have tried several hormonal treatments which make me feel worse. The only thing my consultant is offering me now is a full hysterectomy or wait for menopause, I am 47. The symptoms are getting worse with some sciatic pain now. My cycle is becoming shorter poss premenopausal - so more pain.
Should I ask for a 2nd opinion? Can I ask to be referred to a BGCE? Has anyone had a full hysterectomy?
