Unhappy What do you do for your Endometriosis? PLEASE HELP!

Hi,

I am a 46 year old and have this. I have been told by two OB's that I should have a "Complete Hysto", and I don't want to do this, my other option was Birth Control, or Lupon shots.

I am scared to death, and used to be able to talk to my mom about anything, but she has early stages of dementia, and I don't want her to worry about my problem. I am having a very hard time dealing with these issues. I love my mom so much and hate seeing what the disease is doing to her........((((((

I have painful intercourse and this is not fair to my husband, anxiety, out of this world, painful periods, IBS-C, can't go like normal.


I am scard to death and have to be strong for my mom. Can anyone please give me advise or options on what to do. I don't want to have a Hysto, for all the things I will go through, but I know the time is coming. My heart is always beating fast, and I just hurt. I don't know where to turn.

What do some of you all do for the pain? I take way too much Alieve that it literally tears my stomach up that time of the month.

Please I am at my witts end. Please help me.

God Bless,
D

Re: What do you do for your Endometriosis? PLEASE HELP!

I'm so sorry for all that's going on with you.
I dont really know much about endometriosis other than knowing one person who has this but she does not have pain.
I just had to comment to let you know that someone is "out here".
There seems to be so much going on with you that I would suggest maybe seeing a theropist to at least dump all your feelings on.
I am really sorry I could not be of more help but know there are people out here thinging of you and hoping for the best.

Re: What do you do for your Endometriosis? PLEASE HELP!

I have the same problem. I'm at a point where I actually just want to have a hystorectomy and be done. But I am only 25 with one child. I was told by my doctor to take birth control and to also skip the sugar pill. He said that would helpy ovarian cysts go away and "shrink" the endometriosis. I still have to start taking the birth control. I have been debating on it because I am scared of the possible side effectes. I suffer from anxiety and I refuse to take meds, unless I can't take the pain anymore. I see you wrote you have anxiety and hurt all the time. Where exactly do you hurt?? I personally feel like I hurt everywhere:/

Re: What do you do for your Endometriosis? PLEASE HELP!

HI!

I have severe anxiety don't know if it hormones or what? I am going to have blood work to see what they are looking like.

I hurt having sex with hubby and feel very sorry for him. I generally hurt about two weeks up to my period. The pain is in my back, stomach and even effects my legs, and I am not over weight.

I am like you with BC scard of the SE. We should googl and see what ones have the least side effects, but SE effect everyone differently.

I know the pain and yours and it is driving me crazy but not ready for a surgery like that. I had three fibroids taken out in 2008 but know for a fact per my OBGYN that some have come back. Waste of lots of money.

What road are you looking at? A total Hyst?
