Hello ladies, I've had endometriosis for at least 8 years now and it's just gone worse and worse each year. Nothing I have tried has worked, so my doctor is encouraging me to have surgery to remove scar tissue and a possible cyst. I'm hesitant to do it because I've heard that surgery isn't really effective because the tissue just grows back and that the recovery from it is horrendous. I'm wondering if I should just forget the whole thing and go for a hysterectomy? Can anyone share their experiences either on surgery or hysterectomy? I'm really tired of this disease and if a hysterectomy will just nip it in the but I may just go for that.

Thanks xx

I guess I could update on this. I had it done late last year and they put me under for it. I was really nervous about it, but I went well and I've been feeling better since. I had to stay the night because of the anaesthesia and I had some bleeding and horrible cramping afterwards and I couldn't do any heavy lifting or exercise for about a week. I have an appointment with my gynae soon so I'm hoping that the endo hasn't come back.
