I am going to have exploritor surgery soon to confirm diagnosis. My doctor wanted to do this two years ago but I was scared. This year i just could not take it anymore. In the middle of my cycle I get a very sharp pain in my abdomen that can put me to my knees. I spot in mid cycle. One month my period is for 5 to 6 days and the next month it is 1 or 2 and sometimes very heavy or very light. This month has been the worst. I had my period on 07/27 and literally everyday since then I have cramps, bloating and my lower back and legs hurt. I hope this is just not all in my head. That is my biggest fear...to go have this surgery and find out I am fine. I do have family history..my mother had a total hysterectomy with stage 4 at 36 years old. Well that is my story so far. I am excited that I found this site, I hoping it will shedd some insite on how I am feeling with everybodys own experiences. To know that I am not alone or crazy. Any advice would be appreciated.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
