Hello, I have seen a general gyno today in another city as I had to because they can refer me onto the endometriosis specialist at this hospital which I found through BGSE, previously i was at my local hopstital with no specialist.
He started talking about Induced menopause to see if I can then go on to have a full hysterectomy (I'm 36) but I was put on an induced menopause drug in 2012 and I had a total breakdown and very severe side effects and ended up on a mental health ward it was so bad.
Does anyone know of other treatments I've seen anti pregestorone drugs mentioned on she trust website as a treatment specifically for endo, lots that do not induce menopause and ive been on esyma to help with pms and found it amazing so no I do not react well to progesterone as this was isolated as the problem by my previous gyno by putting me on esyma therapy which is anti progesterone.
Does it have to be this, I'm so fed up as the pain in the last six month each month has been unbearable, I'm on dihydrocodiene and bedridden for four days a month
Also the gyno today said that he wouldn't want to risk a laroscopy because of risks, this is the first I've heard of this, it's the go to procedure and mine is no different to others he said because it's on the bowel even tnough I said I didn't no where it was exactly, he has no notes either on where it is. I'm confused
Anyway I'm seeing the specialist because I insisted but the general gyno said he will just say the same as the above and offer only this treatment, I said well I can at least have access too the pain specialist hopefully. Arrrggghhh scream
I feel lost and stuck any help would help.
