I have endo and have had it from a teen and have adenmyosis (I think that's how you spell it) so I have had laparoscopy etc after my daughters birth and everything was stuck together it was horrific pain, constant infections and I was totally unable to go to the toilet etc but within 6 months even with a coil I end up needing surgery again...I have 2 children and one step son so with three monkeys and the pain and trying to work it's just too much. A lot of endo was found particularly on cervix my ovaries and my tubes during laparoscopy, I was desperate for my now 7 month old so we had the last surgery, they removed as much as possible and we're advised to crack on! Thankfully I was able to conceive and now he's a bouncing crawling little bean. I made it very clear to them (after having cervical cells twice lasered too) that I did not want the hassle anymore. I have 3 children, was very lucky to have my son, I would probably not be able to have anymore children and to be honest the pregnancy was unbearable and it's just taking over my life with the pain, constant worrying about cells on cervix etc I just want everything out. My family has a history of exactly the same my mum ended up with huge fibroids and suffered for years so I've asked them to take everything out. They agreed last month and have since started me on the zoladex. It's not too bad, I've had quite a few hot flushes and I was pretty pain free for two weeks, now in the third week I'm bleeding extremely heavy and been in agony for the first couple of days this week. It's started to settle but the bleeding has continued and to be honest I feel totally exhausted now. I was just a bit dubious about the next two injections, what to expect with the HRT etc as I don't know anyone that has had a course of zoladex before. I'm 28...so yes they have been very cautious about agreeing to do the hysterectomy but as there's not a great chance of my carrying a child again and with the cells etc I think they have had to agree it's for the best. I need my life back to an extent!
