I'm new to this site. I am 35 and have had Endo for nearly 20 years. I have tried pretty much every med out there from BC pills to Lupron. I had my last lap almost 3 years ago and the last couple of months I've been feeling severe pain again. My Endo is all over, on my bladder, bowels, uterine wall, ovaries and tubes.
I just went back to the Dr. yesterday and we discussed a hysterectomy, but I am so against that as early menopause runs in my family, so I'm hoping that I only have a few years till I hit it.
So, here comes another lap for me soon.. It makes me want to cry thinking about it. You'd think I would be used to this by now after having five of them, but I'm not. I'm scared still and I'm frustrated.
Is there anyone out there that understands? I feel so alone......View Thread
