I hope it works out for you, it is horrible being pushed from pillar to post and never really getting an answer :)


Hay hun. I had bleefing ovarian cysts & went through 2 years of fighting! Lost so much weight i was nearly hospitalized with malnutrision & dehidration. I had to have 9 months of stomach inplants to make me menopausal ( dry run to hysterectomy) which stopped the pain. So had a full abdominal hystetectomy in the summer holidays last year. Now 2 weeks ago was told that all my problems that started 10 years ago were all becaus3 of fmd! But one thing i can say is the desision to go ahead with the hysterectomy way definitly THE BEST THING IVE EVER DONE!!

Good luck hun.

Hi joed

I genuinely and sincerely hope that it all works out well for you. I know from your other posts that you have suffered a great deal with this and it is time that you found some resolution and relief to this problem.

All my hopes and dreams for you



I suffered immense pain like you and mine is due to a lump inside . And when I have my menstrual cycle it aggravates it . Mine is monitored and if it continues to grow eventually they wi think about a hysterectomy too for me but at the minute it's a no for me, just napraxen ..or whatever it is called... Well done on getting someone place and hope the help continues for you ... Good luck xx
