I will be seven months post op from a total abdominal hysterectomy on the 22nd. I had my hysterectomy because I had carcinoma in situ of the cervix with extensive endocervical glandular extension. I have dealt with chronic pelvic pain since I was eighteen. For years I was misdiagnosed with this and that. I was even told I had PID three times but the antibiodics never helped, just made me sick. Finnaly I found a gyn that belived me and didnt just assume because of my age that I had an STD. We did a diagnostic laproscopy in January along with my leep cone and she didnt see any endo. Did see that my uterus was adhered to my bladder and it was kinda neat to see those pictures. When she did the hysterectomy she had to do it abdominally because of the bladder uterus issue. When she opened me up she found that I had endo on both ovaries and tubes. She burned off the endo that I had but left my ovaries because of my age. I felt pain free for the first two-three months but that is because my ovaries were still in shock. Now that they are "awake" again and producing hormones I am back to having constant stabing pain again. She has given me two options. Go back in and burn the endo off which is what she prefers to do, or remove the ovaries and burn any endo off that may have spread. I would like to have my ovaries removed. Is this a wise choice? Or should I just let her do the laproscopy?
