There you have it.

Why cant anything in my life be simple?  Is there a big black cloud hanging over my damn head?  The doctor read my CT scan. He is almost 100% sure the cysts are Endometrioma's.  Endometrioma's are caused by endometriosis.  He said if in fact they are enometrioma's  I would have  stage III endometriosis

The only way to know for sure is to a biopsy, which they typically do while removing the cysts. 

He still want's us to have a consultation with the fertility specialist to see about harvesting my darling little eggs.  The Dr still believes he has to remove the left ovary, and is still 50/50 on the right one.

However I found a doctor about four hours away from us who perform's a less invasive surgery  for those who still wish to conceive. It involves removing as much of the endomertioma's as he can while preserving the organs.

So I am still in the same spot as I was yesterday.  No closer to being pain free or getting prego.  I plan to contact the new doctor first thing tomorrow.

Wish me luck.


  1. Good Luck!!

    And I'm crossing my fingers and saying a prayer... :)

  2. Good luck Karen. Know I'm thinking about you everyday and hoping for things to work out for you... Love ya!!

  3. Karen ~ I know Maryland is quite a ways away but I have the most incredible Gyn-Onc in the world. I went through 4 other doctors before him. He was recommended to me by someone in a similar situation to yours and his plan for her was minimally invasive. His name is DR Neil Rosenshein After an 8 week hospital stay I know him and his staff very well and I can not say enough good things about him or Mercy.

    I know what your going through is hard. Thoughts and prayers.

  4. Michelle, thanks for your suggestion!! I am going for a second opoinion in Dec.
