3 weeks today i am booked in to have a hysterectomy & although my consultant has told me i will never be pain free i should be 70 to 80% better than i am now. It has been a very difficult decision to make as i am only 38. although i am blessed to have 2 fantastic children i am not sure that this was the route i wanted to go down especially as i am going to have my overies removed as well so i am going to wake up to a full blown menapause and i really do not want to take hrt as i have read that it can cause the endo to come back even after hysterectomy. But like many of us i think i have just reached a point where no treament works - or not for very long and i am sick of being poked, proded and pumped full of hormones. After suffering with this condition since i was 12 but only to finally be diagnosed 3 years ago i think it is finally time to take the drastic action and try and get some quality of life back if only for the sanity of my family. I just hope that i am making the right decision.
