It is my cervix and uterus. Endometriosis, ovarian cysts and my uterus is not in the right place.
It is not life threatening but my gyno wants to run more tests. My insurance wont cover anything beyond the pap smear so I sit and wait.
Anyone have advice on these topics?
So my pain has been validated. He said it was likely they would want to remove my uterus down the road. Possible menopause in my 20s. Yuck.
Oh Staci...I am so sorry. I had endometriosis when I was a teenage when only narcotic pain relivers would work. And I would miss the 3 to 4 days of school. I got to be embarrassing for me for awhile when it dawned on most kids what was going on. Now after I had my dd and had the tubes tied, I have experienced ovarian cysts. The first time I swore to god I had someone just taking a vice grip to my insides and pushing and pulling.
I hope everything goes well. Also, check with medicaid. They maybe able to cover this. And have some cheesecake...that will make you feel good!

I had endometriosis- feel free to IM me any time. It's no fun that's for sure. You have my sympathies. *hugs*

staci, if you have to remove the uterus, please do it the less invasive way, through robotic surgery, they do it through your belly button without stitches, the incision is minute and does not need stitches. It sucks to be in your 20's and having to do this, but if it comes to that go the robotic route, I had a hysterectomy like this, they removed my ovaries and uterus, and lifted my vagina muscles and my bladder all with a tiny incision. Hopefully it doesn't come to that. hugs....
