Hi I am new here to this discussion board and really need any advise I can get.I am scheduled to have a hysterectomy on Septemeber 5.It may be a little soon but it will depend on an opening.I have endrometriousis and chronice pelvic and ovary pains.Really bad periods which I have had since I started my periods when I was 13.I have tried Lupron shots 3 times and had several laprosocpic surgerys that confirmed the endrometriosis.It was found behing my uterus.The Lupron shot tells my Doctor that it is my ovaries that are causing so much pain also.We don't seem to have any more options and I am just worried if I am missing something else to try or if the hysterectomy removing my uterus is the right move?Does anyone have any other options that I may try before taking this step?I really have always wanted to experience pregnacy and having my own children but I am 34 and time is running out to concieve and have a healthy baby.I don't want to pass on the Endrometriosis to a daughter either.I know that I can adopt and would make a child a wonderful mom.I am not married and worry that this will really cause me to never have a man except me for not being able to have children.Am I over reacting?I just need some advise.Has anyone else done this procedure and not been with someone and found someone afterwards?Well I have asked a lot here hope someone can give me some advise.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
