hiya Bek 79, iv been diagnosed recently too after a crazy 4+ years. A hysterectomy may not take pain away and you should only have an hysterectomy at a last resort. ask your consultant about prostap, I'm currently at the end of my 6month corse of prostap some of the symptoms which come with it arnt grate but i can get out of bed and almost lead a normal life which has been grate. do some research online on nhs direct or the endo uk site they have really helped me to make my choices through this so far. there is lots of info on what you can give you to try and help you. hope this helps. stay strong and remember you not alone x
