Yesterday I saw a new gynecologist. This Dr. is only a gynecologist (no OB in the whole practice), and he came highly recommended from a friend who also suffered from endometriosis. This Dr.’s first opinion was hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis. After we talked, we decided to try Provera since I have not yet tried that. I go back in 4 weeks to see how I respond to the Provera. If it helps with my pain, then I can stay on it. If it does not help, then he will do a complete hysterectomy (remove uterus, ovaries, tubes etc). via DaVinci robot. I feel good about this doctor and his recommendation. So bye-bye Lupron (as of two weeks ago, my hair started falling out!!) hello Provera.
