: thanks for your story. I am really leanning toward having this done. I am 38 and can no longer have children so that is not an issue. I am getting sicker and sicker with each passing day. The cramping is so intense that it makes me want to throw up. I do my chidbirth breathing to try and get through it. I am also having intense pain in my back. The doctor that I saw told me there we a couple of options, but to tell you the truth even if it is maajor surgury, I want the pain to stop. Thank you again for sharing your story with me. I am glad things worked out well for you and I hope things will always be good.

I know it may sould alittle dumb for me to be asking this, but I don't want to ask my doctor yet because I can't really let myself admit it to myself yet. Please help if you can. I appreciate it.
