Okay,I think it's time to consider a hysterectomy. I have suffered w/endometrosis since my 6 yr old came along. I will either need surgery to remove the endo again or a hysterectomy. I want info from other moms who have had one. I am afraid that i'm going to get fat and grow a beard if I have a hysterectomy. What has your experience been? At this moment,having a hysterectomy does not sound bad. I am at the end of my rope w/this pain!

I had one almost 9 years ago but I still have my ovaries and have been in menopause for a couple of years at least. I did gain some weight but I've lost that and I don't have any problems with facial hair.
Honestly, for me it has been wonderful and I have no regrets.

You should talk to your Dr about an ablation like Julie had. It wasn't possible for me but it sounds like you might be a good candidate for it. It is far less invasive than a hysterectomy and has less possible complications.
