I am new at this whole forum thing but would like some advice from people who are suffering/have suffered the same as myself.
I was first diagnosed with Endo at the age of 14 and I had my first lap and removal of cysts from the ovaries. I was told at that stage that there was no way of knowing if I would be infertile until I started trying to conceive.
Everything was great in the Endo dept for approx.14 years when it came back with a vengeance. I had a lap again and removal of more cysts 3 yrs ago.
1.5yrs ago again it was back but this time I had a salpingectomy and excision of severe Endo.
It was discovered 3 months ago that my Endo is back and it's strangling my bowel, I have a chocolate cyst on my ovary and all of my insides are stuck to my bowel so I am having surgery in July with both the gynae and a colorectal surgeon.
All I want is to have a family, so bad! Has anyone had the same or a similar experience and had the fortune to have a family? We have been told that our chances are extremely slim and our only hope is likely to be am egg donor, even IVF would hold a slim chance.
All opinions, thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated.
