Young women and hysterectomies

I am currently 22 years old and have had three laparoscopic surgeries to date. I've tried birth control (pills, depo, etc), Orilissa & Lupron, and now i'm on the last options. Currently I'm on nerve blocks to try and help with pain from IBS/interstitial cystitis caused by my endometriosis. Im also on tramadol for the really bad days and I feel like I permanently have a heating pad strapped on. I'm trying to find any specialists in the Northwest/midwest before I end up at the dreaded hysterectomy stage. I really would rather not take this step being so young. If anyone has any doctors or specialists they recommend PLEASE let me know. I appreciate you all! Thank you in advance.

  1. Hi @nashstella2 , you certainly are dealing with so much! We can understand not wanting to reach that hysterectomy stage! I am so not ready for that myself. I think I commented on another post of yours, but I wanted to leave it here as well for you. If you haven't joined yet, Nancy's Nook on FB has a list of endometriosis specialists that you can search for in your specific area or surrounding areas!

    Hoping this helps and you are able to find a specialist and relief! We are here if you have any other questions! -Kimberli (Team Member)
