After years of suffering from prolonged and heavy menstruation and failed hormonal therapy to manage my endometriosis and adenomyosis (and recently adenomyoma), I have decided to undergo the knife soon. The doctor said a hysterectomy is the only viable solution to address bleeding. Surgeons will also remove a growing mass in the uterus.
I will be bringing all my medical documents and meet with the OB this week to discuss everything about surgery -what to expect, the operation and hospitalization expenses, and the operation schedule.
Pending the surgery, I will have to stock up on the doctor-prescribed medicines that I am taking to ease the pain and control bleeding for the next menstrual cycle.
Endometriosis and adenomyosis have affected young women and women nearing menopausal age. Iâ€™m in my 40s, and I have suffered from this medical condition for several years now. I canâ€™t do anything or function well when Iâ€™m bleeding and in constant pain.
If you are suffering from the same condition, please visit a doctor. Reading medical journals and references on the net can help you better understand it. However, a visit to a medical professional is always the right thing to do.
Iâ€™ll update this post once I have secured a date for the surgery.
