adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

Hi! I have been told that I have adenomyosis and will eventually have a hysterectomy. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this condition will cause alot of bloating. I look like I am about 5 months preg. I can't stand to feel like this all the time.

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

I have been told that I too have adeno.. Of course it can't be truely diagnosed until after a hysterectomy is done and tests are run. My family has a history of adeno so thats most likely my problem.. I have a swollen belly for about 3 weeks out of the month.. The week prior to, the week of and the week after my cycle begins. I was told I have a uterus the size of a 3/12 month pregnant woman.. This doesn't make me happy of course lol.. So yes, adeno can cause you to look bloated.

I will have to get a hysterectomy too.. They just keep telling me I'm too young at 26. I got my first Lupron shot today and hope that it will help a little.. Any relief is better then none at all.. Hope you feel better!!

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

Thanks to all !!! It makes me feel better knowing I am not crazy!! But my dr. didn't say to much about this when I ask her. But it always helps to hear from someone who is going thru the same thing. I hope to soon have my surgery, and hope even more it will help me get back into my jeans!!! I am now taking care of my mother in law, she fell and broke her hip. So it could be a while before I can even consider setting a date. I will be crazy by then!!! LOL

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

I also have been told I have adenomyosis and I look like I am second trimester my belly is quite enlarged. I get my first lupron shot tomorrow. I am hoping it helps "deflate" my gut a bit as I am tired of people asking me all the time when I am due. I certainly hope that after I recover from the hysterectomy (which we expect will probably be by the end of the year) that I will notice a difference (preferably a BIG difference) afterward.

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

I also have been diagnosed with adenomyosis. I have been wondering why my abdomen feels swollen and despite all the cruches and excercising I do there is no difference. I also have been feeling strong contractions. I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this with their adenomyosis? I am scheduled for a hysterectomy on June 2nd. Im hoping soemone has some help for me. I am miserable and just want it to stop. Thanks.

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

I had my hyster 3 weeks ago and my doctor is suspecting the path report to come back as adeno. I had a 16 week uterus and always looked pregnant no matter what I tried. I can tell you that since my surgery a lot of that has gone away. I still have swelling from surgery but I'm guessing I'll notice a lot more difference once that subsides.

Did you have any contractions? Im having labor contractions with this as well. My doctor said that my uterus is enlarged. Im wondering if the contractions are part of this since the uterus is enlarged.

adenomyosis and swollen stomach....

I had chronic pelvic/lower back pain to the point where towards the end I couldn't even do a sink of dishes without ending up in pain and if I overdid things it would get so bad that the pain would feel like a labor contraction.
I had extremely heavy periods from day one that only got worse as I got older to the point that I was bleeding and passing huge clots most days of the month and the pain was to the point that the strongest pain meds were not helping anymore.

For me having the surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself and the soreness of recovery is nothing compared to the pain I endured every month for numerous years.
