I am scheduled for hysteroctomy in November. Besides my already diagnosed endometriosis of 13 years, I was recently diagnosed with hyperplasia through a D&C and a tumor in my uterus not to mention I have a cyst the size of a golf ball growing on one of my ovaries. I am terrified of the after effects of the surgery. My main problem with this disease is the lack of sleep due to backache and fatigue. I’ve been done the Lupron treatment already and have on numerous occasions tried different types of birth control only to not be able to tolerate them. I get seeeeveeere migraine headaches. At twentytwo when I was first diagnosed with this disease after having undergone my first laparoscopy only to be followed by a laparotomy I was told that I had the body of an old woman inside the body of a young woman. Very consoling as you can imagine and subsequently have been told by five different doctors that my alternative is a hysteroctomy. Since I really don’t understand the long term consequences of hyperplasia, tumors in the uterus and the fear of ovarian cancer I find myself cornered with having to make this decision. I am very confused and scared of the unknown.
