In my last post I talked about have endometriosis AGAIN. I was wondering if anyone has ever had a D&C for endometriosis. If so, did it help relieve any of your symptoms? I am in a lot of pain but, I'm not ready for a hysterectomy. (this is what my doctor suggested)
I've never had a D&C, but I'm pretty sure that is only applicable to inside the uterus... You could get a laparoscopy done, but if you are doing having children I recommend getting the hyster :( I know it's easier said than done - I was told when I have the children I want I need to get it all taken out - I'm 22 I was 19 when they told me that. My mom also had it. She was told when she was in her 30's to have a hyster and she didn't - she regretted it later when she had a hyster in her mid 40's. She was in so much pain all the time. No one should have to go through the pain... and since a hyster is the only way to "cure" it, I would get it done....
Hope this helps a bit.... Good luck and keep me posted....
Hi,I had laparscopy for endo in March ,hysteroscopy,and D & C,to be honest I really cant tell the difference.It did stop the heavy bleeding,and make your periods lighter.It also depends where your endo is at,my is on intestines,uterus and its supporting ligaments so I have severe pain just moving/walking.
I dont want hyster yet as I'm 30 and still want children,but everyone is different, and it might help you,I'd give it a try before drastic surgery.
