Adenomyosis question

Can you have adeno and still not have the boggy, enlarged uterus?

Just wondering.

Adenomyosis question

Laura, I'm not sure about that but I do know that sometimes a woman or her doctor do
not know the diagnosis is adenomyosis until the path report is read after her hysterctomy.
The only reason I knew I had it beforehand was because I had a D&C 6 weeks prior to my
hysterectomy and my doctor found my uterus to be very heavy and boggy. And sure enough,
the path report came back.....adenomyosis. It is a fairly new condition basically because it is
hard to diagnose and in most cases not realized until after surgery. Hope that helps.

Adenomyosis question

Yep, I had it. And didn't know it. Was not boggy or enlarged, other than where my ovarian cyst was making me a tad larger around the lower abdominal area than I should have been. Actually, I just thought it was 'fat' that wasn't going away with exercise!

My doc acted like it was almost 'no big deal'. He said it is very common in women who have been pregnant. Since I was asymptomatic of that 'issue', I didn't worry too much about it.

Adenomyosis question

Me, too. In fact I think my doctor got kind of cold feet when she examined me before the surgery because my uterus felt, as she said, "very normal".

But adenomyosis it was, and goodbye, pain!

Thank you

I was wondering about that. According to my doctor, my uterus feels normal but I seem to have all the other symptoms of adeno as well as endo.

Well we shall see in 5 weeks!

Thanks again!

BTW, my second-to-last ( . ) is due to start in two days. I'm not looking forward to it...but at the same time it's one step closer to the very last one!!! And I will be on day 4 (one of the worst days of my ( . ) ) when I march into the castle.

Adenomyosis question

I just came across an interesting article written by a doctor and he made a comment that now has me wondering. He said that many times he has diagnosed a fibroid only to discover later that it was actually adeno. Years ago I was diagnosed with a little fibroid. A couple of months later when I had my d&c the doctor couldn't find the fibroid. It had disappeared. Now I wonder if it actually wasn't (isn't) adeno.

I know that my surgery will answer all these questions for me, but being all I can't help but research this subject to death.

BTW, here's the article in case you're interested. Adeno

Thanks Laura

This is a great article.I'm going to insist they do a path on my uterus.Maybe that's the cause of my pain.
