What type of a doctor are you seeing in May? Have you ever seen some type of endocrinologist? Because you have both endometriosis and PCOS, an endocrinologist might be a good choice for you!
You are aware that neither endo or PCOS will be cured with a hysterectomy, right? PCOS is a disorder of the entire endocrine system, not just a problem with cysts on the ovaries. Endometriosis can persist because not all doctors are able to recognize and remove all of it and because it can be microscopic and undetected during any surgery.
While you are waiting for your appointment, I would suggest that you keep a symptom diary. Be as detailed as you can and then take the information with you to your appointment. Anything you can share could help your doctor pinpoint what is going on so the right treatment plan could be determined for you!
If you do decide that a hysterectomy is right for you, please seek at least a second opinion before heading into OR and find the most skilled surgeon you can find as far as the endometriosis. If you can, I would highly advise finding an endometriosis specialist
In a nutshell, here is my experience in case it might help you. Once I started bleeding in 1998, I bled on any and every bcp. I ended up bleeding just about every day for two years. I did have a D&C (along with a lap and hysteroscopy) to try to stem the bleeding but it didn't work. Since the lap showed that my uterus (and appendix) was covered in endometriosis, I then had a hysterectomy.
Prior to my hysterectomy, I was having abnormal paps. Turns out, the endometriosis was the problem! All of my paps since my hysterectomy have been fine!
I did have several complications with my hysterectomy that caused a very long recovery and affected my health for many years. Also, my GYN was not able to remove all of the endometriosis so I continued to have pain and issues until I saw an endometriosis specialist
several years later who was able to excise all the remaining endometriosis.
I wish you all the very best for whatever you and your medical team determine is best for you. I know that deciding to have this surgery can be a tough decision and there are many pros and cons. If there are options available for you besides a hysterectomy (Lupron, Depo Provera, aromatase inhibitor), I would encourage you to consider them.
