My Follow Up

Well today was my follow up after my Lap. It was what I expected, with a little pinch of worse. Does that even make sense?

Anyways, the Dr said I definitely have Endo (surprise surprise) and it's worse than what he thought...meaning it's in my left tube and also my uterine wall. So he wants to start me on the Lupron Depot shot for the next six months then he will see where I am with everything and go from there. He sounded positive about us being able to try in the fall. I sure hope he is right. He also said he fixed my uterus so it isn't heart shaped's normal now. At least one thing is good!!

About this Lupron Depot...anyone ever been on it? The nurse told me it would put me in to a menopause like cycle (or lack of cycle) but that I would also have mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats and other things of the like because of this shot. This makes me a little nervous. But I have been trying to think about the end result here. And if after all of this, I can have a baby (or two) it will be worth it right?

I mind is confused about everything, but I guess everything happens for a reason right?


  1. I'm on it, and it for sure sucks, but it is so worth it if it works lady. You can do this!

    Don't ever hesitate to e-mail me if you have ANY questions!

  2. So sorry you got the rough news of severe endo... certainly not fun. I did the Lupron last year for 6 months. I had the hot flashes and night sweats, but no mood swings. It is worth it though! VERY worth it! Even if you can't have children afterward (like me) it's still worth it because it greatly reduced my pain. Plus you don't have a period for about 8 months which is such a relief!! :) Feel free to email me with any questions...

  3. i'm sorry about your news! although i don't have any experience w/ Lupron, i'll pray that it helps and works for you!

  4. Thanks ladies! I start it next Thursday so I have been saying my prayers! I am just ready for all this to be over and hoepfully get some good news out of it!
