Endometriosis and endometrioma

by Sharon Mashburn
(Fairbanks, AK)

My endometriosis was so bad it would bring me to my knees. I bled for over a week at a time. I was miserable. When my doctor opened me up she said it was like a bomb had gone off inside me.

I had scar tissue all over everything. My small intestines were bound, my bladder was wrapped and squeezed. She informed my family I must have been in a serious amount of pain regularly.

My ovaries alone were full of chocolate cysts. So for me a hysterectomy was the only way to relieve the situation.
