What if your 2nd opinion doesn't have one?

Ijust got back from my 2nd opinion and he said I need to talk to my reg gyn about it. He said it may not help, but it won't hurt. He suggested talking the dr about lupron, but in my mind all that will do is postpone the surgery. If I try it for a month and it works she'll want it out. If I try it for a month and it doesn't work, she'll want it out. He also said to maybe ask about an IUD, but I can't take any hormones in my body, it freaks out, plus I worry about it making my cramps worse. I don't need anything that will make things worse.

My GP said since I'm not using it and it hurts every month take it out. My pain dr said if it hurts during my period more then my other chronic pain then take otherwise don't. It hurts a lot more then my chronic pain.

Right now I'm so PMSy I just want to go to bed and pull the covers over me and pretend it's not happening. I just want to ignore it and not deal with it.

I just don't know what to do.

I go to my regular gyn next week. I'll see what she suggests.

i'd definitely get a third opinion from a gyn surgeon. a hysterectomy is such major surgery...you need to be able to make an informed decision.

Hi Garden1313,

I agree...get a 3rd opinion. Truthfully...it sounds like another 2nd opinion since your 2nd opinion did not have one.

Sending best wishes~

I would get a third opion, my second was horrible. he said Adeno doesnt exsist and endo can only cause pain on my period and so my pain was in my head and his plan for me was to take megace for 10 months then lupron for 2 and do that till menapause ( which is 20 years away) grr sometimes second opions mean you need a third lol.
hugs

There's the problem. I HATE all the other gyns in the area. They are all rude, and uncaring and always cancel my appt due to deliveries (with no one on call as a back up to their other patients.) I normally go to planned parenthood for my yearly because I've been seeing her since before I had health insurance. She said she would agree with what my other dr says because she is one of the most respected gyns/surgeons in the area. She dropped the OB part to deal with the gyn part and the surgery part (she also does a lot with cancer treatment.)

So I've talked with my GP, pain management Dr, rheumatologist and my yearly-when-I-have-no-issues gyn and they've all basically said the same thing, if the monthly pain is that bad then do the surgery.

In the past month I've spent over $150 in co-pays alone, something I cannot afford. I worry about the IUD because I have needed MRIs and other tests of that area for other health problems and they've always said if I have one in they can't do it.

My husband is all worried about it. He has it in his head that pain three days a month isn't worth major surgery. He's worried I'll feel worse afterward due to my other health problems. My rhuematologist thinks it may make me feel bad for a while but it won't be forever.

I just don't know any more.
