Paula’s Endometriosis and Cancer Story

I was 25 when I had my hysterectomy. It has been a year now and I still can’t believe it. I had to have mine because of stage four endometriosis as well as cancerous cells. This was surgery number five for me.I was so upset because I never thought I would be going through menopose at my age. It is very hard sometimes because nobody ever told me that it was going to be this hard or this rough to deal with. I had to go through three different estrogen treatments to find the right one and now I am fixing to have to change it again.

If I could go back and change it I wouldn’t not because for the simple fact the surgery basicaly saved my life but because if I hadn’t had it I would have gotten cancer and not had the chance to get ready to marry the man of my dreams.
