Well Ladys.. I decided to introduce myself. I am 23 years old and have had Endo for 3 years. It started over a period of time. I would wake up and have horrible pain on my right side. Then the pain slowly moving to the left also. I went in to the ER to see what was going on. I didnt have any insurance at the time. They told me oh you "just" have Cysts. So as more time went on I sarting hurting more and more. To the point of throwing up and sleeping for days at a time. So back to the ER.. Yet again nothing but cyst. Then after about a year of many ER visits and 10k in hospital bills. I had a doctor tell me that I had a complex ovarian cyst and that I needed to see a doctor right away. So I went back to my OBGYN that delivered my son. He told me that they had to do surgery right away... The day before pre-op I recieved a call from this doctor. He asked what kind of insurance I had. I told him it was medicaid. He said ok see you tomorrow. Amazingly the next day I went in and he told me that this cyst had went away and I no longer needed surgery. Well I was a little surprized because not even a week ago I had to have surgery right away.. So I decided to get a second opinion. I went to the doctor that most of my relatives go to and told him what had happened. He had me in for surgery 3 days later. He found alot on the implants all through my girl parts. He removed those and also this complex ovarian cyst. After the surgery he told me I had Mod-Severe Endo. He told me that he would like to put me on Lupron. What a awful drug that was... 4 months of hot flashes, dizziness, blacking out and crankiness. I was also hospitalized for 5 days due to passing out while driving. Not good. So 4 months after the last surgery. I was back in pain. My doctor told me that it was all in my head and that there was no way that the endo was back. Well after a few times of seeing him he decided to do surgery again.... and guess what??? More implants... also he had to remove my right ovary and a ton of scar tissue. He said that he was very surprized at what he had found... He then put me on continuios Nuva Ring.. Well that work for a while. The pain started back up in May. My lovely doctor started telling me oh just take these pills. Loratab.... Well I tried to explain to him that I was sick of all of the pain and that I wanted a Hysti. Well in Utah where I live people seem to think that having only 1 child is a sin or something. He told me that he didnt want to do that because what if??? I wanted more children... I explained to him that in the past three years I havent been able to best mom to my little guy. It is due to not being able to chase him around the playground. Not being able to hold him, not being able to get down on the floor and play games and cars. I told him of the things my little 4 year says to me. Like mommy I wish you didnt hurt so bad because I love you big. And things like mommy why do you always hurt. I will take care of you. I told him that the only thing I want right now is to be able to raise the child I have and be able to not have to switch jobs every 4 or 5 months due to the next surgery. My doctor then said. Well why dont you get pregnant? My reply.. What so I have another mouth to feed and not be able to afford it because I am in consent pain and cannot hold down a job. Thats a great idea. Well then came surgery 3 it was July 22nd. He once again found 23 implants and scar tissue. I have spoken to him since about the pain and he replied with a prescription of Loratab. Im at a loss.. I not sure what to do next... Brandi
