I am new to this group. I just found this forum this evening. I cannot sleep because my mind is racing. I would appreciate some advice.
I am 42 years old with a history of endometriosis (diagonosed 6 yrs ago). In that time I have had two surgeries to remove bilateral endometriomas each time Following the first surgery I was prescribed depro injections for a year and then advised to use the mirena iud. The second surgery followed in two years. This past September (two years later) I landed in thw ER with my first rupture which was incredibly painful. While there imaging was done and revealed an 11 cm endometrioma (confirmed via MRI) on my opposite ovary as well as two others on that ovary that had a rupture. I'm experiencing a significant amount of pain.
I am scheduled to have both ovaries and tubes removed in less than two weeks and I'm terrified. Doc feels that I have too much scar tissue to save an ovary and that we'd just be going back in even if she tried. Can anyone tell me what to expect following surgery based on experience? Thanks. I appreciate any support.
