Never thought it was endo…

Endometriosis was never even in my vocabulary until a little over a year ago, even though I have dealt with painful periods for 25 years. Now multiple TVUS, MRI, CT and 2 surgeries later, I no longer have a uterus or fallopian tubes and am hoping that my pain may be manageable now. I see an amazing pelvic pain specialist who told me after my hysterectomy that this is not the end of our treatment, this is just the beginning and we will figure out how to deal with issues together as they arise. Through it all I was able to have 4 healthy children.

    @devonn80 Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. I’m so happy you have finally been able to get treatment, it’s shocking how long it takes to get diagnosed!

    I’m glad you now see a good pelvic pain specialist. The hysterectomy should help with the endometriosis, especially if the surgeon also removed all remaining endometriosis in the pelvis at the same time. I had a hysterectomy about three years ago and have been completely pain free ever since.

    Really hoping the treatment will work for you and you can finally be pain free.

    @devonn80 thank you for sharing your story with us. It’s incredible how it keeps taking so long for endometriosis patients to be diagnosed. But I am happy to hear that you are on the road to recovery and have been able to have 4 healthy children 🙂 – Jessie (team member)
