help - dont know what to do !!

Hello
I am in the UK and have just found your brilliant site - I have learnt so much ! I have had problem periods since age 14 - pain, clots, heavy, fainting etc which have got worse as have got older - am now 39. Have 2 children 8 and 2 years, since ceasarean section 2 years ago problems have got worse and have developed bladder problems also.
Have just had laparoscopy & hysteroscopy for help with diagnosis. Results show that bladder & uterus have become fused together possibly as result of section. I also have a uterine septum so IUD is out of question.
Specialist has advised hysterectomy as solution but am worried that I will be left with bladder problems etc.
I would welcome any advice anyone may have. I have found out about adenomyosis from this website and wonder if I may have this as doc said uterus was enlarged .
Please help !!

Hi Karan

So glad that you found us and that you are finding support here.

You say that your uterus and bladder are "fused" together, probably due to the c-section. I'm assuming you are referring to adhesions. If you are concerned about your bladder if you have a hyst, you need to ask your gyn about this and you might also want to consult with a urologist. Sometimes a urologist is brought in to assist with hyst surgery when there are bladder issues.

As for possibly having adeno ... it is very hard to diagnose adenomyosis other than through the pathology exam following a hyst. But an enlarged uterus could be caused by adeno. Your problem periods could also be due to adeno. Another possibility is fibroids ... was there any discussion of that?

You are wise to be asking questions. A second opinion is always a good idea if you are considering a hyst. Keep reading and posting and we'll provide support, whatever you decide.
