I was diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis at 19 after a multiple cyst rupture my sophomore year in college. Almost 23 years later, 22 doctors, 4 surgeries, 2 runs on lupron (horrible), 3 runs on mirena, my last doc confirmed yesterday, that after my last pelvic MRI , I have a 10cm fibroid(1 of too many to count - that was only just 2 small ones years ago- my severe adenomyosis and endometriosis) that it's time to go through with a hysterectomy. 😢
I was told when I was 19 to get one then and I wouldn't be able to conceive or even carry a child to term because it would be put my life in danger. Knowing that this may become a reality has always been at the back of my mind but having to actually go through with it is entirely different. Some days I feel so numb.
