Dr. Mosbrucker in Gig Harbor, WA

I have surgery scheduled with Dr. Mosbrucker in December. This will be my second surgery for endo. I have a lot of anxiety this time because I felt absolutely no relief after my first surgery and it’s been discouraging. I met with Dr. Mosbrucker a couple weeks ago and she also informed me that she thinks I have adenomyosis and wants to do a presacral neurectomy, does anyone have any experience with this?

I'm so sorry to hear that. I had "Dr. Mos" for my second surgery and I had fantastic results. I didn't have the neurectomy though because my adenomyosis… read more

Should I be worried about a 6.6cm ovarian cyst?

Should I be worried about a 6.6cm ovarian cyst?

My doctor put me on birth control and scheduled another ultrasound, which I have to postpone because I lost my insurance, but she said it’s most likely an Endometriomas (?) cyst and made it sound like I don’t need to worry about it. She’s a new doctor so I don’t have a relationship with her and saw her because of cramps and excessive bleeding. But 6.6cm seems big?!

Anemia + high platelet count (thrombocytosis)

Anemia + high platelet count (thrombocytosis)

Good morning lady warriors,

I am 3 month post lap. My cronic anemia persists and my blood tests continue to show high platelets. This is called thrombocytosis. My gyno is concerned and had sent me to a hematologist and now blood tests to diagnose the situation. I would be very appreciative of anyone else with this situation could share with me their experience.

Thank you!

Has anyone gone to a massage therapist for endometriosis pain? Did it help? Or maybe any home remedies to drink for the pain?

Birth Control- LoLoestrin Fe

Birth Control- LoLoestrin Fe

I was switched to this birth control earlier this year because my body doesn't seem able to handle any hormone pills stronger than this one. However, I have now been bleeding daily for over two months. My gyn says I need to keep taking these pills, but I am not sure that I can keep doing this. It is annoying, for one, but also concerning to me. Any similar experiences or advice?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I'm sorry and that sucks. Do you know the name of them? There's some that keep the same level of hormone all month (monophasic) and some that change… read more
