Hello Jules,
It's unfortunate that sometimes doctors leave patients feeling like we don't have a clue whats going on. Remember, you hired your doctor, so in essence they are working for you.
I totally understand wanting to change doctors, but being right in the middle of you health care makes it difficult, just the very notion of starting over with a new doctor can sometimes seem very daunting. Doing another sono after your next cycle seems pretty logical, what did you think about that decision? You could always pick a new doctor, wait until your next cycle, do the sono and then take all of your information to the new doctor. Second and third opinions are always a fantastic idea.

Re: questions about bulky uterus

I have an enlarged bulky uterus and will be having a hysterectomy soon. My doc feels it is adenomyosis since I have alot of the symptoms.

Re: questions about bulky uterus

Hi Ladies,

I have the same thing...questionable adenomyosis with "cysts" within the uterus (enlarged). My doc said that we have to do an mri, since the sono isn't really diagnostic if it is adenomyosis. I feel bloated adn there is some bladder pressure. Also have tested pos. for a weird yeast...glabrata which there isnt' that much info on and its tough to treat apparently.

In my thirties with no kids, so I am a little freaked out about surgery.

do any of you know what else adenomyosis is confused with?

For anyone with confirmed adenomyosis what were your symtoms?

Alexis
