I am glad you got your dx and hopefully the surgical procedure will take care of your pain. I am sorry it has come down to surgery. Bless you and thank you for the update.

It's not easy to lose an organ, and a hysterectomy requires something like 6 weeks of recovery time, even with modern procedures. But, after living with a bad gall bladder for 5 years, I'm not sorry I got it taken out. I'm not normal, but at least I quit hurting. Boy, is that ever a relief.

My mother had endometreosis and fybroid tumors so bad she had her uterus taken out when she was about 32 years old. She said recovery was rough, but once she got over that, she felt like a million bucks because she wasn't constantly hurting and bleeding randomly. Her sister had a total hysterctomy at age 29. My mother ended up having her ovaries removed a decade later because they were so covered with cysts they no longer produced any hormones or functioned at all.

I'm on Depo Provera right now, hoping that by not allowing my ovaries and uterus to cycle, I won't have to get them taken out. Like both of them, I've never had a regular period; it never came when it was supposed to. So I fear that I'm one step away from developing the other problems that they had, albeit many of their problems got worse after they had a child, which I do not have and will not have.
