They removed both ovaries and it stopped a lot of it.. there is still pain but both ovaries were infected and swollen due to it to the point where one ovary was larger than my uterus and the other larger than a grape fruit. I will NEVER be able to have children.. i am 22 and in menopause because of this.

Had too many to count.
I have gotten three surgeries. I have also had a ostomy. With my last surgery (two weeks ago), I got rid of the ostomy. Yay! Luckily, this last surgery was very successful and I haven't had any complications yet!

I have had 5 surgeries now.
Surgeries seem like a band aide, the effectiveness does not last.

Removal of a nasal polyp lead to the discovery of ACC. A 2nd surgery was performed a fortnight later to remove surrounding tissues including my posterior septum. Surgeon is happy with results. It has only been 2 weeks since my 2nd surgery - very bad headaches and fatigue are the main side effects at this stage. Minor ones include, loss of smell, bad taste in mouth, reduced taste of foods and irregular sleep which also leads to irritability
