Hi! I'm brand new here and this is my very first post! I'd like to say that I am very sorry for your suffering. I know first hand how bad the pain can be and how hard it is to deal with emotionally. Your post really stood out to me because we are so similar! I was diagnosed with endo 15 years ago and suffered for a very long time before any doctors would listen to me or try to figure out what was wrong. I've had 8 laparoscopic surgeries one was a hysterectomy last year. I wish I could tell you that it fixes me, but it didn't. I do think it helped and I'm hopeful that after a while any endo left will dry up. I'm still having pain almost every day but I did have a lot of relief. I don't regret it because thee do had grown into the muscle of my uterus and I had several fibroids. I hope you find the relief you are searching for! Good luck!!!
