I have suffered with pain for nearly two years now. All started with having a loop excision done and thats when the pain started. Had a scan done and there was a 7cm cyst on the right ovary, looked 9months pregnant and was very painful and i didnt have an appointment to see the consultant for two months later so had to beg the hospital to remove it after going the a&e numerous times in a month and in the end they did and removed four cysts two 7cm and two 2cm two on each ovary. Pain still didnt go away and ended up back in surgery 10months later to have another two cysts removed one on each ovary 5cm. Again the pain still didnt go. I had come off the pill after the first surgery and got and ius fitted to see if that helped the pain but obvisiously never. After the second surgery had another scan four months later to see if the cysts had regrown but luckily they hadnt but still in really bad pain. So i got put on prostrap injections for 6months to determan whether it is endometriosis or fibroid. They do tend to work for the first 3weeks but in the last week when i was duethe next injection the pain would come back getting worse each time the next injection was due. Just before my six injection which i had on monday was the most painful week looking 9months preganant again, couldnt walk, it hurt to sit, stand lie down and painkillers dont seem to work, so ended up in a&e and having morphine which didnt help either. They did a scan and nothing shown up and just told me to go for my next injection, which i did and the pain and swelling has gone again. I just dont know now whether it would just be easier to have a hysterectomy because i cant cope with pain anymore and i am now dreading having the pain come back in just over two weeks and i dont see my gynea til next month. I did want kids but i dont want this pain to continue any longer. So do other treatments work or is a hysterectomy the best option?
