Hi Guys,

I'm new to this site. I am 35 and have had Endo for nearly 20 years. I have tried pretty much every med out there from BC pills to Lupron.
I had my last lap almost 3 years ago and the last couple of months I've been feeling severe pain again. My Endo is all over, on my bladder, bowels, uterine wall, ovaries and tubes.

I just went back to the Dr. yesterday and we discussed a hysterectomy, but I am so against that as early menopause runs in my family, so I'm hoping that I only have a few years till I hit it.

So, here comes another lap for me soon.. It makes me want to cry thinking about it. You'd think I would be used to this by now after having five of them, but I'm not. I'm scared still and I'm frustrated.

Is there anyone out there that understands? I feel so alone......

I'm so sorry you have to get another lap . Its hard and many of us women here know exactly what you are going through. I hope everything goes well with it and that it keeps the pain at bay til you get menopause. A hysterectomy isn't an answer to it all anyway because the endo can still grow in the absence of everything so I totally understand your not wanting to go that route. Good luck with everything and keep us updated on how things go. We post roll calls every now and then (usually once a week) so feel free to participate if you like. We just use it as a way to keep up with each other and offer support and vent when we need to
