If there is better surgeries than a laparoscopic procedure and also what type of medication have you guys have had good or bad experiences with?
Hey lady! Excision surgery is the gold standard. Be ready to need a repeat of the surgery every 3 to 5 years or less depending on stage. Endo can still grow after a hysterectomy. For medication, I've primarily heard nightmares with IUDs. I did depo shot once and periods greatly increased in frequency and flow. Thankfully, insurance didn't approve Lupron as I soon heard more horror stories with it. Now, I'm just on bc pill. It's a journey, and everyone is different. Finding a good endo specialist is key in all the above. Best wishes.
Hey ya excision surgery is the best option for permanent removal of endometriosis but they have to ex size all of it and your gynecologists isnt trained for it so you have to be sent to an excision specialist as far as I understand it hope that helps I can't say much about medication as I react badly to those kind of medicine I just use rubs heat and Advil. Good luck with finding what works for you 🙋🤗🙏
Lupron sucks I also have endo in my bowel not just my uterine lining and I have had not only excision surgeries but also 2 major abdominal surgeries because of a preforated colon so hey I know all to well about surgery having 3 excision surgeries I think if I get put under one morr time my body won't know how to handle it. I have a IUD it's not horrific but not the best in the world like I've said before if I don't take aygestin for one day I have extremely heavy periods and pain/major cramps!
I've had three excision surgeries already and I've heard women that have had the children that they wanted to have and then get a total hysterectomy and still don't get complete relief from endometriosis that might be a rumor but honestly I think I had read that in a medical journal one year feeling pretty upset about the pain of my endometriosis and how there are not enough medications out there helping us get true relief that we actually need!
