I’ve just seen a new endo specialist as my last one has just left. I’m stage 4 endo with bowel envolvment. I’m at the stage where I need surgery and went in thinking I need a full hysterectomy & end up on hrt. The specialist however is reluctant to do full surgery as my bowel envolvment will mean I need a resection if my bowel. He has suggested just taking out my ovaries & leaving the rest! I’ve never heard of this before but it did make sense. He’s suggested I have 6 months of Zoladex & HRT which will give us a both idea if I respond well to just having my ovaries out. I’ve previously had Zoladex for 3 months but stopped it because I became so muddled/forgetful/fatigued and last resort was just missing a car crash. However endo pain had gone! He thinks my previous consultant should of put me on hrt as well and would like to check hrt will take those symptoms away.
Anyone else had just ovaries out?
