Hi I had my review last week I have been in agony for years and finally in Dec I got diagnosis of endometriosis and ovarian cysts. I was put on zoladex treatment but suffered severe side effects so consultant has now decided on surgery. I had a hysterectomy removal of cervix and womb 14 years ago when I was 26 it was a mess they had to cut my womb away from my bladder. Now the consultant has put me on waiting list to have the endometriosis burnt away and removal of ovaries which will put me straight into menopause. What's the average recovery time for these procedures I'm already ill with rheumatoid arthritis Fibromyalgia amongst other problems I'm just scared if it will work and how painful it is afterwards any advice would be great been told it's about 4 month waiting list they also testing for cancer gene and cancer levels for some reason. Any help please.
