Ever since I was diagnosed with endometriosis, I was told it’ll be hard for me to get pregnant and doctors said the only way is to have surgery and remove the endo, etc. There was one doctor who said if I don’t have surgery “quick,” my endo will eat up both my ovaries and I’ll never be able to have children. The doctors scared me. They went from compassionate, to emotionless, to making me scared if I don’t have surgery. I couldn’t help but think to myself, is this the ONLY way? Will surgery really work?
After careful research, most women get their endo back within a short period of time and some women get their endometriomas back the very next month after surgery! Then they put you on lupron and you feel terrible because it makes you in a menopausal state. But does this really cure the endo?
Doctors only know how to “cut” off a problem but don’t ask “what caused” the problem. If you can spend some time asking yourself what caused the problem in the first place, you’ll have a basis to cure it. I read on many women’s commentary on endo sites, women’s sites that they had to have a surgery every year for their endo because it keeps coming back and they ended up losing their ovaries and even one doctor removed their entire uterus! Guess what? Even when he removed the uterus, the endo was still there and growing back the next month! It’s hard to not ask whether doctors are doing it just for the money. What I want to ask is why they have to change people’s lives just for the money? Have they any heart to know that these are real women with real problems and they are messing with people’s lives???
It made me mad. Many people leave their lives up to the doctors but doctors do not necessarily have your best interest at hand. Why won’t they ever share WHY the endo occurs? If your body can “stop” developing endo, then you wouldn’t need surgery and better yet, you’ll have two healthy ovaries waiting for you when you do want to get pregnant. Just because someone doesn’t cut you open, doesn’t mean you can’t find cure. So many people want a “fast” cure when they’re unwilling to face what they have done to themselves. You should be happy you found endo in your body! Your body is telling you “hey, I’m suffering here, can you please correct your lifestyle and save me?”
Many women ignore this fact and think that cutting things and burning things will solve their problem when the problem is really themselves. By now through reading this site, you all know that excess estrogen is the cause of endo. Decreasing estrogen foods and avoiding xenoestrogens from the the environment can save your fertility and monthly pain. If staying away from certain foods can give you a lifetime of relief and freedom from infertility, would you do it? Isn’t it a small price to pay?
I’d rather give up food than go into surgery and get my insides burned from laser through laps. I refuse to go in to multiple laps and find out at the end of it all, none of my ovaries is left from the doctors. Not only will I be left with more endo, my insides would have already been ruined by surgery.
This is why I started this site to share my experience. It breaks my heart to read women who are going through repeated lap surgery to remove their endo and then finding it come back again and again until they can no longer bare children.
If you have a girlfriend in need, please do ask them to search for alternative help besides getting surgery. Please forward along this site and show them that it is possible to have an endo free life without any surgery and you’ll stay that way forever. All they need is the perseverance to give up some foods they love. Small price to pay for fertility and pain free periods right?
