After having a laparoscopy three weeks ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 3-4 endometriosis. Not a surpise. My doctor has prescribed Lupron for 6 months, along with a low-dose estrogen replacement (Premarin). I am terrified to do these treatments, but since I have significant endo on the colon, he thought this could possibly help me get to menopause without any additional surgery (I am 45). Plus, the endo on the colon could potentially be dangerous. I have lost 15 lbs. in the past year and DO NOT want to gain any weight or have the severe menopausal symptoms. Should I be worried? I have spoken to some friends who have done Lupron. One had minimal side effects, the other none. I have read, however, HORRIBLE stories and frankly, am terrified! Help!
