I had a partial hysterectomy last year due to endometriosis. I am having pelvic pain again. My doctor wanted to give me Lupron injections to shut down my ovaries but it would put me into menopause. This pain is unreal....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
If I were you, I would ask him about having a laproscopy done to see if it is indeed the endometriosis that's causing the pain. I don't understand why he would want to shut your ovaries down before even knowing what the problem is. If he refuses to do any testing and only wants to give you the Lupron, you might want to think about seeing another Dr for a second opinion.
