I had my post op appointment last week. The pathology report was in. Two things that were noted were Adenomyosis and that my uterus was very enlarged.

Is Adenomyosis very common?

I had that also...did a bit of research after the fact. From what I know, it is common and can only be detected during pathology, so you'd never know if you had it otherwise. My uterus was about twice the normal size, which I think is also common. Glad it's all gone now!

with the symptoms I had during my first visit at my new gyn's he thought I probably had large fibroids. I had the usual tests, told him of my prefuse bleeding, the terrible pain. He called me back that night saying he had got a call from the lab because of my critical blood level.(5.5)I was transfused the next day.four days later I had a ultra sound. I only had one fibroid, cysts on both ovaries. The technician showed me where she thought I had endo. The next day my dr. called me at home and said for me to look up adenomyosis( he knew I was doing research on all of this). He said he thought by looking at the ultrasound and the symotoms that this is what I had. Sure enough, when my pathology results came back, I had it and 1 fibroid. My uterus was five times the normal size with adhesions sticking it and the bladder together and to the abdominal wall.
I have noticed where alot of us had adenomyosis. The only cure for it is the hyst.

I also had Adenomyosis as well as endometrisis and never knew it, even my doctor was surprised since I had a the balloon procedure in May prior to my TAH and showed no signs, it must be very hard to detect. The dr seemed releived that I did have it which explained my continous pain that he thought was all in my mind. Did you have a lot of cramping before your hyst?

I had severe adhesions. My uterus was stuck to my stomach muscles. The dr. thought I had fibroids also. During an ultrasound they thought they saw 3 fibroids.

I had a Lap. about a month ago and I saw the pictures taken during it. I was amazed by what I saw. I guess having had 3 c-sections left me with tons of scar tissue etc..

my cramps were awful!! I bled about 3 weeks at a time during the last year. Finally, I had had enough. I would cramp for about the first 2 weeks every month, then it would ease off a little. I had terrible, terrible cramps in my abdoman,pains shooting down my thighs, terrible back pain. I am so glad it is all gone forever!! I used a heating pad, 2 hot water bottles and tons of ibuprofen to get through it every month. I worked full time and it was so very hard to live that way!!

I had a lot of cramping. I had cramping all month it seemed like. Lots of pain.

I also have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I am pretty sure my estrogen levels have been very high. Do high estrogen levels have anything to do with Adenomyosis?

I don't think so. I had fluid filled cysts on my ovaries. I had a 5cm one removed during surgery. My hormone level continues to be normal. That is a good question to ask my gyn during my pre op appt. the 19th.

Can't wait to get back to normal so I can enjoy the no more cramping lifestyle : )

My pathology report also stated I had Adenomyosis and an enlarged uterus. Funny thing is I had no symptons - no severe cramping or heavy periods. The reason I had the hyst. was basically because of a cancer scare....first they thought I had ovarian cancer and then were worried about uterine cancer...very strange. But, alls well now...except going back to work tomorrow - but that's ok. I know when I come home you all will be here!!
