As stated I’m 18yeas old I only got diagnosed with endometriosis on the 15th may 2017. Both ovaries are stuck to my Fallopian tubes and my left Fallopian tube is stuck to my pelvic floor. I have also suffered with reoccurring horrendous cysts from them bursting to currently twisting at 9cms big.
I’ve been put on all contraception to try and relief the pain, nothing.. on all sorts of pain relief to try and relief the pain, nothing, even my pain clinic doctor doesn’t know what to do.
I’m currently on prostrap Injections 3.75mg (every three months) I also had my coil removed last Tuesday 19th dec 2017 having it removed gave me instant relief and once I had a normal period I’ve been okay.
The reason why I am asking for advice is one thing my consultant wants me to do is have a baby because although I’m okay now my body is going to produce more and more endo and with that cysts and to be honest I’m petrified and also so tired and drained of it controlling my life.
I’ve been in a relationship for two years now and recently engaged, amazing relationship with family and everyone is supportive of me having a baby, but am I making a wrong decision I’m going the direction of trying for a baby to cure my endo and will it actually work?
Please if someone’s been in my shoes before can you please help?
Oh what a decision. Can you not have surgery to remove the endo. I have recently had this surgery (I'm 36 tho) and the surgeon was happy he had managed to remove it all. It will grow back but no one knows how long it will take to grow back. They also told me to try and have a baby to delay it coming back but from my understanding a baby won't cure it it just suppresses it during the pregnancy 🤔
Only you can really make the decision but best wishes what ever you decide to do. Xx
Hey, thankyou for messaging back so quickly..
In may that’s what they wanted to do laser it all and then because he wasn’t able to with how much there is he’s given me the option to have a sterilisation so once all the endo that I already have is gone itll all stop but I come from a big family and that’s just not an option so he wants me to have a baby hoping that the hormones go so high that it’ll kill it all off!
Totally understand that you don't want sterilisation aged 18. Is this an endo specialist that you have seen. If it isn't please look up BSGE centres. I travelled over 2 hours to a hospital to see a specialist to have surgery rather than my local hospital as the specialists can do so much more. I had stage 4 .. frozen pelvis 5cm recto vaginal nodule 8cm right ovary and 4cm left... They were so big they were twisted and touching (kissing ovaries) plus lots of other bits and it was all on my bowel too so they shaved it off my bowel. This was all removed and tubes flushed in a 3 hour key hole surgery. Definitely get a 2nd opinion. Are u in the U.K.?
