Hello ladies,

I've had endometriosis for at least 8 years now and it's just gotten worse and worse each year. Nothing I have tried has worked, so my doctor is encouraging me to have surgery to remove scar tissue and a possible cyst. I'm hesitant to do it because I've heard that surgery isn't really effective because the tissue just grows back and that the recovery from it is horrendous.

I'm wondering if I should just forget the whole thing and go for a hysterectomy? Can anyone share their experiences either on surgery or hysterectomy? I'm really tired of this disease and if a hysterectomy will just nip it in the but I may just go for that.
