Hi spakitten,

I found a good link in the HysterSisters Resources that explains what adenomyosis is that might be helpful to you.


Best wishes for an uneventful and pampered recovery!

From what my dr explained and what I had to look up on the internet, it is also known as 'inside-out endometriosis' -- the endometrial tissues from the uterine lining grows into the uterine muscle (the myometrium). It bleeds along with your period, but the blood can't escape and accumulates inside the uterine walls, which causes really bad uterine pain, swelling, cramps. It makes your uterus spongy--there is a picture of it on the internet at -- it's kind of gross looking, just to warn you.

I didn't find out until the pathology report came out and my doctor called me. I also requested and got a copy of the path rpt when I went for my 2-week follow-up the other day. It was interesting. He went over the whole report with me and explained everything.
