Fibroids, Endo & Gerd

I was diagnosed with endometriosis almost 30 years ago. Had two laparoscopies and two laparotomies which ended the pain and sickness but left me infertile. Haven't had obvious symptoms since. Almost two years ago doc said I had a fibroid that has now grown to the size of a thirteen week pregnancy. Last year I began having acid reflux problems (no heartburn) and was diagnosed with a lazy gallbladder which was promptly removed. Didn't help and neither do the meds (have tried almost everything on the market). Had yearly exam yesterday and doc says fibroid may contribute to problem but advises I should maybe try lupron or embolization to see if it makes a difference but the more I read on these two options the less I like either one. I would go for partial hysterectomy but doc says they recommend I do lupron first to minimize complications due to the endometriosis. However, I don't want to experiment with something that may turn out to be unnecessary. I am pretty discouraged at this point and wondering if I will do myself more harm by taking lupron or by just doing nothing. HELP!
