I am a 38 y/o female and I have had three children. I was diagnosed with endometriosis about ten years ago and have had a couple of laparoscopies to remove lesions and a couple of years ago, had my uterus removed. I have been experiencing the following symptoms lately:
- Pelvic Pain
- Chronic ovarian pain (right more than left); pain seems to be affecting upper abdominal areas causing what seems to be gallbladder pain, heartburn and nausea. I have had a little bit of difficulty with shortness of breath, chest tightness, have undergone allergen testing and been diganosed with asthma. Allergy tests showed multiple reactions to environmental things like dust, mold and ragweed - they started immunotherapy. I am also on inhalers, allergy meds and acid reflux meds. There is a family history of endometriosis in my family (both sides) and many of the women have had total hysterectomies. In my case, they left ovaries intact because of my age. My worry is that while there is no known family history of cancer (breast, ovarian), should I be concerned that this is something worse? My doctor just continues to say that it is endometriosis. I have had several pelvic exams and two transvaginal ultrasounds recently; all seem to be OK. An abdominal CT scan, did show cysts. Please help!
