I was recently diagnosed with possible endo (so excuse my lack of knowledge and terminology!!) via an ultrasound. I grew up with some pretty rough cramps in adolescence, but they seemed to mellow out and were entirely managable for a few years. Then a few months ago I started having abdominal pain and digestive issues, coupled with random bouts of sudden unprompted cramping that had me doubled over unable to move.
Anyway it seems that I have a cyst that is just hanging out on my right ovary (and who knows how long it's been there, not me or my obgyn.), along with endometriosis which, if i understood correctly, was causing other large cysts to form and rupture next to that cyst every time I ovulated.
But she gave me 2 options, surgery to remove the cyst or start Depo to stop ovulation completely. I picked Depo, but now I'm wondering if it's worth looking into getting the surgery as well? She said it was entirely up to me, like getting the cyst removed was more of a mental thing, which seemed a little vague. Is it worth looking into a specialist instead of just seeing my OBGYN, and how would I go about doing that?
