Endo after Menopause
I had a complete Hyster after many years of suffering with Endo in 2005, in 2009 I had my ovaries removed. I still to this day have pain in random places in my lower abdomen. I even read in a report prior to having my uterus and cervix removed the doctors had to stop because they could not distinguish the difference between uterus and bladder due to massive adhesions and thick scared tissue. I have been to many doctors and here in Abilene, Texas it is horrible finding someone who knows how to treat this disease. My current GYN (Michele Johnson MD) who says she doesn't think I even have endo even though I have records confirming that I do. The pain is horrible, I move I hurt, menopause does not help because I have been told absolutely no estrogen because I have stage 4 endo and they don't want it getting worse...I'm beyond that point. Endo is taking over my life, I don't sleep due to pain, I can't do everything I want to do without being in pain, or having to stop what I'm doing due to the pain. I feel as if when I sit my insides are going to rip in two, if I stand I worry about if my right hip (osteoprosis) won't give out. I hurt all over from the top of my head even in my big toe. I'm fighting social security to be declared disabled because I have problems walking, sleeping, and performing daily activities. I need help but no one has the answers I'm looking for, is there hope or light at the end of the tunnel I have no clue, but I continue the fight hoping that one day I will find peace with this Endo and Menopausal hell I live in.
