I’m in a quandary and need some help! Some history on my issues… Long term endo, 5 laparoscopys, 3 ICSI IVF cycles (1 wonderful Son) 1 Caesarean Section. 15 years of Endo hell and painful ovulation and periods. I’m 43 and I think I’m at the end of my fertility journey, we can’t afford anymore IVF and my body has been through enough. I took Progesterone only pill in January for 4 months, it was hell on earth, weight gain, mood swings, depression, bloating, contestant bleeding etc. I begged my consultant for zolodex which he obliged and I’ve had 4 monthly injections (and taken Tiblone HRT to combat hot flushes). He’s concluded it’s my ovaries causing the trouble and it’s all about management of symptoms. He now wants me to try Merina Coil and if that doesn’t work I’ll need a partial hysterectomy to remove ovaries.
So my question is, should I just skip the coil and go for surgery? My issues are all hormone related symptoms, moods, bleeding, pain, depression, weight gain, bloating, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety. I kind of think what’s the point of more ‘trying’ horrible hormones why don’t I just go for surgery. Menopause is coming anyway and it can’t be worse than what I’ve had to deal with up until now surely? I feel great on zolodex (I can cope with side effects) and after 4 months feel slightly more human than I ever have done! I am going to ask him if I can continue more zolodex, but I know that’s not a long term solution.
I’d be grateful for any advice. Thanks xx
