It's been years ago but my endometriosis caused me severe cramping and heavy irregular cycles. The doctor put me on BC which helped. I've had 8 surgeries in my abdomen & pelvic regions over a 25 year period, 3 major, and endometriosis has been present every time (even after they removed my uterus & even up around my gallbladder. My sister needed surgery to clean out all in her pelvic region just to get pregnant. I'm sending you hugs love and prayers! 🙂❤🙏🌼
May I ask how old you are? I had a hysterectomy at 36 due to adenomyosis. I had constant cramping and bleeding. The pain was so bad, I had no pain post op because there was just relief lol Hysterectomy is a last resort so I hope you are able to find some relief.
I'm 57 but had a hysterectomy at age 34 then an oophorectomy at 44, them a 10 cm paraovarian cyst at age 49. Endometriosis was present each time, which was confusing because the menstrual cycle is what's suppose to make the endometriosis occur.
Hi there, I'm new to the community here, but have been researching and dealing with endo for quite a while now. Unfortunately, there is no cure for endo, including a hysterectomy. It is one of the many misconceptions or myths that a lot of people have, even in the medical community. It can calm the symptoms of endo and help some people's pain, as you no longer have periods, and it can help with other causes of pelvic pain such as adenomyosis. Sadly, many people who have had hysterectomies still end up with major issues from endo years after having their hysterectomy. Endometriosis creates it's own estrogen, and nothing will stop the actual disease from doing tissue damage and causing adhesions unless it is removed surgically by laparoscopic excison that is done by a highly skilled and experienced endometriosis surgeon. There are few truly skilled endometriosis surgeons to go around though, so finding proper treatment can be difficult. :,( If you are on Facebook, I highly recommend the EndoMetropolis group or Nancy's Nook if you are interested in doing research into the condition and how to go about advocating for proper care for yourself. There are even some highly skilled endo surgeons, researchers and other knowledgeable medical professionals involved in these groups. EndoMetropolis also doubles as a support group, where you can talk with other endo patients about their experiences and get emotional support. 💛
I have endometriosis since I was 30. Painful condition. Had a hysterectomy. 10 years later my first abdominal surgery. It had wrapped around all my intestines and had actually choked them off. It’s an ongoing issue. Has calmed down now as I’m 64 now. Of course could also be a issue with my many back issues (?) Fragnarock wishing you the best.🌺
