I had my laparoscopy yesterday and the consultant found a large hard mass which he thinks is Endo but it was so hard he couldn't cut through it and was worried about piercing the bowel. He also said he's found in my pouch of Douglas which is why he's convinced it's on the bowel.
I'm going to be referred to a colorectal surgeon and he's offered to be tempered to, to try and remove any other Endo they find. He then said I will ultimately need a hysterectomy. I'm 35 and don't want children. My logical brain is telling me if I'm going to have major open surgery for the bowel then why not take everything out then, if ultimately I will have to have it out anyway but I don't really know the risks of having it too early.
I appreciate I will need to have my ovaries to further reduce risk of Endo but then I dread that you could continue to have sexual desires up to 20 years after the ovaries arm removed, by which time I'll be 55. Doesn't seem very old to stop wanting sex, although I can't do much at the moment anyway.
Not really sure why I'm writing, just getting of my chest I suppose but if anyone has had similar experiences or facts about hysterectomy it would be great to hear from you. X
