I'm new to this board, but I really have no one else in my own life personally that has dealt with this issue before. I'm a 25 year old mother of 1 in college, I was working full time but the pain has gotten so much worse in the last year that I ended up loosing my job. I had a laparoscopy done in March of last year, they found some endometriosis growing and they scraped it off, the Dr warned me that it could come back and my new gynecologist believes it has. She is thinking that we should do a hysterectomy to just go ahead and take care of the whole problem because even with medication for the pain that just covering the symptoms vs. actually treating it. I am really apprehensive of having a hysterectomy because I'm only 25, and my fiancee and I hadn't made any decisions really on whether or not we ever wanted to have more kids. So, does anyone out there have any advice on what would be best or if there are other alternatives over something that seems so extreme? If anyone out there can give me some advice it would be GREATLY appreciated.View Thread
