Please someone help me find a specialist in the missouri area that can help me! Histroectomy is not an answer and I refuse to except it!
I suggest you go to this website and read this...I too have suffered from Endo for about 4 years since I gave birth to my daughter in 2005. I did not know what it was til about Feb of this year. I found this website while doing research and think that this is the reason my symptoms and pain declined. I even found out that I am 7 weeks pregnant, something that I never thought would happen again. I honestly feel and believe that changing my diet helped me get rid of my pain and helped me get pregnany. I highly suggest you read this and try it. It mentions flax seed and thats something that I have eaten every single day with organic yogurt since about April and I can tell you that since then my pain was occurring less and less. Let me know what you think...good luck with everything from someone who has suffered too :) I hope everything works out.
p.s. please dont get a histerectomy...you are way to young
