Endometriosis Has Taken Over My Life

Thank you so much for this site! I thought I was alone. I was dignosed with endo after a miscarriage through transvaginal ultrasound.

I was told I had "mild" endo but it doesn't feel like that anymore. I used to dread my periods but now every day is a struggle.

I have all the symptoms that have been mentioned: lower back pain, horrible cramps, bloating, radiation of pain to legs, diarrhea, migraines, fatigue. I'm so tired battling this disease.

I've had endo probably since I was 13 (puberty) but I just didn't know it until my mid-30's. Endo is messing with my marriage, my job, school, the things I used to love I can no longer do. I'd rather stay at home.

I wanted children but was told that with endometriosis, my odds are less than 5%. I'm now 43 and need relief. I made an appt with my OBGYN to get more help and to seek dianostic and surgical options because the endo is getting worse and I don't want to live like this anymore.

Any advice on whether I should just get a full or partial hysterectomy? I'm just tired of hurting and endo taking over my life.😥
