My name is Louise , 31,live in Warrington & I've had endometriosis since I was 16, in the past year I've been diagnosed with pcos.
I've had numerous laparoscopies, tried every pill (all of which cause heavy bleeding), the hormone patch,prostap & recently the Mirena coil-which caused intense bleeding & pain so bad that I now use morphine every day!
I'm at the end of my tether,I've had this issue for 15 years,it controls every aspect of my life. If I lift,I bleed, sex causes heavy bleeding & intense pain! I have now being diagnosed as anemic & b12 deficiency as I am that run down,I struggle to eat a proper meal as I suffer with horrendous nausea.
I had a gynaecology appointment today & the doctor was fantastic. He removed the coil, and had a good discussion with me.he has agreed to do a hysterectomy if I want one. but has warned me about the risks of having it done at a young age. I have 2 children, so I don't want any more. he has explained about brittle bone, heart disease etc...
Could anyone give me any advice?! I have to go back in 4 months to give my decision & I want to research as much as I can so I know I've made the right decision!
Thank you & sorry it's so long!
