Ok first of all I am not that young according to most. I am 30 will be 31 next month. I have had endo for pretty much ever I was diagnosed when I was 22 or 23. I have had 6 surgeries do to my endo. They have removed my left ovary and tube and it wasn't until then when I was 28 that I was finally able to get pregnant. My son was is going to be 2 in January and I feel truely blessed to have him. I have had one surgery just a D&C and some surgery on my bladder due to my interstitial cystitis since my son was born, but not for my endo. I am having almost constant pain and the bladder dr keeps sending me to the gynecologist and he keeps sending me to the bladder dr. I know something is wrong with me and I feel like they are passing me back and forth. I am taking medication for my bladder have been for months and I take constant birth control to not have periods because the pain in unbearable then. I have also been getting pelvic floor physical therapy and I am so frustrated. I finally called and told the nurse I think I am being passed back and forth and doing everything and no one is helping me no one is making my pain go away. She gave me an appointment and told me I need to realize that I need to get a hysterectomy or they can't help me anymore. I feel like having an emotional break down right now. One I want the pain to stop and two I don't want the option taken from me to have more children. Pregnancy was rough but I would do it again I just didn't want to so soon. I want to provide the best for any child I have and we live in a two bedroom house and I would like to move somewhere with more room and I would like other things to be more secure and then have another child I also don't feel my fiance is ready yet for another child the only reason I would be is if this is my only chance. I just don't think it is fair to make me make this decision now but I do want help with this pain. I really feel on the edge at a point where emotionally I am so fragile I may break.
