A hysterectomy is a major surgery and the thought of it can do a number on our nerves!
I would suggest getting the opinion of at least one other GYN before proceeding. This way you can know for sure that a hyst is right for you and/or another GYN could offer you some alternative treatment options. If endometriosis is suggested, then you might want to consider an endometriosis specialist
. I wish I had seen one years ago!
There is no cure for endometriosis so you do want to be knowledgeable about this condition and you want the best doctor you can find. We do have several Endometriosis Resources
you can read through and you are welcome to ask any endo specific questions in our Endometriosis Support
You also want to consider whether or not you will have your ovaries removed and if so how you will treat surgical menopause. Estrogen can allow any left behind endometriosis to grow and spread, however, estrogen is also benefitial for our heart, bones, skin, eyes, libido, and more.
I would hesitate to have surgery when you are so freaked out. You want to be sure you have weighed all the pros and cons for you and that a hysterectomy is your best treatment option.
Talk to your doctors some more, seek a second opinion, consult with an endo specialist if you can, talk to your support group -- DH, family, friends, research, and then do what is best for you!
