I remember hearing those words out of the doctors mouth. Yes you have Endometriosis. I wanted to cry. Two days earlier was my 20th birthday. I got engaged. My fiance knew there was a chance I had it but we were hoping for the best. After finding that out the doctor told me there was more. I thought to my self “Oh great what can be better than this.” The next words out of his mouth I didn’t want to think about. He said, “I’m sorry to tell you this, but you also have a syst on you right ovary. Its about 3cm x 2.5cm and we might have to take the whole ovary.” All I could thing about was 20? How does this happen at such a young age. I go in soon to find out what is the next step, but im really nerves. The nights get so bad. The doctor gave tylenol 3 for the pain and Motrin for the inflamation. I’m now hoping I can still get pregnant. For anyone who reads this I feel your pain. I think I just need someone to talk to who understands what im going through.

I have joined this group in an attempt to get info on what to expect now in the aftermath of surgery. I had a laproscopic operation last Thursday, Jan. 6th, which lasted over 3 hours, unveiled stage 3 endometriosis and took 60% of one of my ovaries. My follow-up appointment with my doctor is this Friday when I’ll find out more on exactly where all he found adhesions.

I am 38 this month, and do want to have children. The doctor said I should be able to get pregnant.

Can anyone offer any advice on questions I should ask my doctor? or what I should expect from this point forward?

Thanks, Tish
