Hi I've pretty much convinced myself I have endo all over the place. Including possibly in my veins (vena cava) which terrifies me. I don't want any more children and will do anything to stop it progressing and spreading anywhere else. I haven't had a lap for a few years as I've had 2 children recently. The pain is all in my chest and neck area. I get palpitations and chest flutters which scare me silly. I was swimming the other day and noticed pain and difficulty getting breath when my chest was submerged in the water. Weird. Does anybody know if a hysterectomy and possibly removal of ovaries would stop it getting worse? I understand that it won't stop the current pain I'm having but will it stop it worsening? With it being all over the place I presume I can't have it all operated on. Thanks for any help on this. I'm very scared and fed up.
