Hysterectomy three years ago due to endometriosis
(Benoit's Cove, Canada)
I have had 28 surgeries for endometriosis.
It was so severe that I would vomit and pass out for over a week every month. I also had cervical cancer.
The doctor was shocked how I didn't get to be diagnosed with a laparoscopy, as it grew down my cervix.
I still have severe pains at time in my stomach but am not sure if this is due to endometriosis. The doctors have advised me that I may still get it after hysterectomy because of the severity of the disease.
I can say that I don't have the debilitating pain I once had, so, it was worth it for me just to be rid of some of the pain.
Title: So sorry to hear what you have been through because of endometriosis
Oh my God - 28 surgeries. How have you kept going through all this. And I have to ask why have the doctors been so willing to keep operating on you over and over again.
I would think that each surgery could only make matters worse by adding to scar tissue. The way doctors treat us makes me so angry.
I do feel for you and all you have been through.
All the best
