Hi, I was just told that I should have a hysterectomy because of my endo and was wondering if anyone else has had this or has been told this. I'm 35, had trouble getting pregnant, so I had a lap and was told I have stage 3 endo. This was 7 years ago, since then we were able to have 2 beautiful kids and I had a few years pain free. Over the past 4 years my symptoms have just gotten worse and worse and now my dr is scheduling me for a hysterectomy and I'm worried. Has anyone else been through this? He said they are going to do it laparoscopic and that they would try and leave the ovaries.View Thread
