I’m new on here, but most definitely not new to endometriosis!!
I’m finally getting some sense from consultants around having a hysterectomy. I had a telephone consultation a couple of weeks ago (not face to face because of lockdown)
The Consultant explained that I would need a full hysterectomy with ovary removal as I suffer from severe migraines and can’t take hormone therapy. (I do think the migraines are related to endo!!)
I have been asked to research into the full hysterectomy to see how I feel about going straight into the menopause and the potential risk to my bones etc and have a follow up appointment in 2 months, which I agree is a sensible thing to do.
If anyone would mind sharing (as much or as little info as they feel comfortable with) I would be really grateful.
My personal experience/situation so far;
I started when I was 10, always in excruciating pain, spent my playtimes at primary school inside wondering what was happening to my body. Was finally diagnosed at 19. Have 2 children and don’t want any more and am coming up for 25 years of suffering. I can’t tolerate the pain or moods with it anymore. I find I only have 1 week out of 4 where I feel like a normal person, the rest are leading up to it, having it or trying to recover from it before it starts all over again.
Thanks for reading, any help gratefully received 🙂
