Hi Ladies, would anybody who has had this operation be able to share how it went, how you felt afterwards and how it affected your life generally, how the hrt has worked, as well any effect as your endo?
I'm 42 and don't need ovaries for fertility reasons but confess the idea of removal disturbs me irrationally for some reason. It does seem though that I am severely ill and simply may not have much choice in the end.
Hearing others experiences would really help me get my head around things. Tia for your stories....
My background: After a laparoscopy diagnosis of Deep RV Endo ( a single 2 cm nodule) in December I've been in discussion about surgical next steps. Initially I was told I'd need excision. After further bowel investigation though I've been told it's high risk as bowel is attached to the cervix and distorted and was instead recommended a zoladex trial with a view to possible oophorectomy BLO and tubes if it works. I've agreed to this trial and took zoladex round 2 yesterday. So far it is not going all that smoothly side effects wise. I am generally not in great pain though my fatigue is off the scale and hard to cope with and sexual intercourse with hubby is a past memory now. I have bladder issues that are disruptive, my bowel despite being the cause of it all is not problematic though I am occasionally straining when I used to be a cup of tea and go girl ( apologies for the tmi). I am post operatively experiencing more pelvic pain than pre op. I have a coil in which has stopped my periods.
