The gynaecologist thinks full hysterectomy perhaps too much. I have to choose by 19th December. I think he thinks that ovary removal is the best option, he said a TCRE still leaves the problem of the ovaries. I believe he means both as producers of hormones and the endometriosis around them. The ovaries would be removed by laparoscopy BUT he doesn't know what he willl find in there it could become a bigger operation - more than a decade ago my right ovary & fallopian tube were tangled with ureter and the gynaecologist at the time said he didn't want to try laser removal of the endometriosis as he feared puncture of the ureter. Transvaginal ultra sound has shown left ovary has problems now, and more important I am exhausted. Very.
My GP warned me that Mirena coil could take at least 6 months to settle down - I wil have a longer talk with her in 4 days time - I have other health problems and that needed to be discussed first.
At first I thought mirena...now I'm not so sure. I am 49, my mother and grandmother did not embark on the menopuse until well after 55 years old. I was first diagnosed with endometriosis 20 years ago - it has been up & down.
After having looked at another question I wonder if the gynaecologist was describing possible Adenmyosis - I really really am exhausted and I could hardly think during the consultation, but having looked at what it is seems possible....
