I am 52yo & after my partial hysterectomy a couple of weeks

I am 52yo & after my partial hysterectomy a couple of weeks ago the path report stated I had/have Endo. Does anyone know how long it will be before I am in pain again from it? Was looking forward to being pain free after this surgery, but just learned, much to my dismay, that this is going to be a lifetime sentence. How bad is it going to get, what can be done about it, and where will the blood go, since my cervix was cauterized? I am just starting to learn about this horrible disease. Anyone else on this boat who wants to share their story on it, I am most appreciative. Thx!

Hi Raine14,

It's funny you mentioned that your post disappeared. I posted a response to your penultimate post, and it too has disappeared! It was the post in which I asked you how your doctor's appointment went. Since you spoke of your doctor's appointment, I am wondering if you happened to have read my post before it disappeared. I also spoke about the funny thing that this website seems to be doing to apostrophes in my posts. Did you by chance read about that from me? If not, what I spoke about there was that every time I use a contraction or any apostrophe in my text, it shows up later on as other text, as if the program that runs this website does not recognize apostrophes. For that reason I am not going to use apostrophes any longer if I can help it. I just wanted to explain that, especially if it looks weird all of a sudden because I have stopped using contractions or the correct syntax for possession, etc. LOL! The funny thing is, it is not doing this to type I read from other posts, only my own. It is still very annoying.

Anyway, thanks so much for the update on your doc visit and your docs comments on Endo. Its very interesting, not to mention VERY encouraging regarding possible future Endo revisits now that my uterus is gone.

Going back a few posts, I have to admit, I REALLY love broccoli. I know that now we can no longer be friends, but I felt I should admit this shameful practice. I have even been known to eat it... wait for it... RAW!!!. OMG!!! Do you hate me now? ROFL! Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. LOL!

Take care and have a good week. :-)

Oh dear! It seems SG is having some technical difficulties. Honestly, the case of the "disappearing post" has been a long-standing problem, but usually one that comes and goes. Like a once-a-month occurrence. Usually within 12-24 hours everything sorts itself out. The apostrophe problem can usually be fixed with a simple "Refresh" of the page, but I can understand your alarm. It's discombobulating!
Unfortunately I did not get to read your disappearing post! So if there is anything else you mentioned, feel free to mention it again!
The lack of a uterus does give me hope. I still have a lot of pain that's been getting worse recently, so right now my doc is trying to figure out what's causing it since it's still cyclic in nature. Did you know that the intestines have receptors for estrogen and progesterone, and depending on which is dominant during the cycle, the intestines will act differently? Higher estrogen leads to decreased pain-levels, but increased inflammation, and progesterone triggers the production of gases and decreases intestinal motility. Sometimes I hate being a woman . . . .
Now, now, no need for such a fuss over broccoli. (Although I will never understand this aspect of you and may quietly consider you certifiably insane.) But the way I see it, having a friend who loves broccoli can be a good thing. See, every time broccoli shows up on my plate, I can simply pass it over to you and voilà! The broccoli is gone and everyone is happy!
How are your classes going at university? Most places have started back now, I believe.
