LUPRON = raving, madwoman!!! LOL had to stop it after using very breafly years ago....I am currrently not permitted to use any meds that have any hormones in them due to my high risk statis for estrogen feed breast cancer. Seems obvious that i make alot of estrogen already...
yep, sounds like u grow big cysts! LOL, softball sized...my ob/gyn always refers size to fruit! lol...the last hemmoragic cyst i had as size of an orange (a small orange to be exact)..ha ha....and the last ruptured cyst was a little over 8cm. I know i have another one due to pain, and missing period for 9 weeks (yes, did say 9 wks), pregnancy test is neg.
I know those adheasions suck to! It's really a catch 22 w/ surgery anymore! I'll tell u, it really makes for a LONG, SLOW, SCARY, c-section while awake...lol
Is the surgery u r refering to a laperatomy? rather than laperscopically??? As i mentioned, i had one open inscsion using my csection scar, and actually had to make it bigger due to the adheasions blocking view and fear of nicking a inflamed bowel from my UC. Recovery for that was still not as bad as my csection, however, it is obviously much worse than a lacerscopic procedure. I hope u will not have to endure yet another surgery!
I would def. think that w/ ur history, that you should be able to seek treatment w/ a PM group! I wish you luck!
I see my gyn this monday for u/s to check the new cyst, praying it is a functional cyst so i can just hope to cycle and rupture it on it's own...guess only monday will tell!
Good luck, also, u might want check the other posts, i know i say some other ones related to endo a while back
