Radical hysterectomy cured my Endo and gave me back my life!
by Annie Beer
After suffering from the age of 12 I became so disabled with Endo that I had to leave University and was unable to work. I had no quality of life, no money and no social life.
I became so ill in my 30's I was initially diagnosed with Cancer. I underwent an emergency radical hysterectomy where the worst case of Endo the Gynae had ever seen was revealed.
I was in surgery for double the expected operating time. I was unable to take HRT for months to allow any residual Endo to 'die off' so I did hit the menopause hard.
However months later I was allowed onto topical HRT. That was 10 years ago and have been symptom-free for 10 years! No more chronic pain, endless heavy bleeding, coming through my clothes or chronic diarrhoea and fatigue.
Having the radical hysterectomy gave me back my life and I wish I had undergone the surgery a decade earlier. I don't claim it will cure everyone but feel the other side of the story needs to be heard.
