I've had Endo & Adenomyosis for as long as I can remember but formally dx in March 2005 at age 37 via Laproscopy. I was set to have a hysterectomy but insurance said no because no cancer was found.
Been dealing with it no meds since then plus a lot of other health issues. I haven't had a period for 2 months or so (very normal for me) but I started Monday, everything was normal until I woke up this morning at 3am sneezing. I sat up after I felt something "pop" and then intense pains inside my upper stomach.
Waited till 5am and went back to bed when my husband woke me up I was bleeding on the sheets, even though I had just changed at 330. Off & on all day been having kind of a burning inside the middle of my chest, pain in my middle back farther up than normal monthly pains and left side, every time I move, I bleed through everything I have on - tried maxi pads, over night ones both, tons of clots - small and larger and weird pains in my legs than normal.
no clue what my test results mean or if they matter? dr just told me Endo & Adeno...I had numerous irregular portions of tissue found with admixed fragments of hyperplastic enometrial polyps with focal features of non-menstrual stromal breakdown and superficial myometrium with superficial adenomyosis negative for malignancy.
Luckily I had a GYN appt next Friday for a yearly exam...not sure if I want sympathy or to be told to quit whining! lol I took a Vicodin which helped with a little pain but the clotting and bleeding keep on. I'm just so drained :(
I've been dealing with this so long I've gotten used to just dealing with it all...and it helps I have a good gyn I just know he's going to jump on my case about not going to the ER with the symptoms I had :P I just felt so horrible I didn't want to move.
I really don't want to have surgery again - I'll be 44 soon and may have some issues starting with menopause and been reading about others using progesterone cream? Can someone tell me or pm what it's called?
