I am kind of curious as to who here has had an endometrioma/chocolate cyst before. I just had a lap last month (August 17, 2011) to remove an endometrioma on my left ovary (that grew at a rather quick rate of around 6 or so months). At the time, they also found a couple of spots of endometriosis.
I'm EXTREMELY worried about getting another endometrioma/chocolate cyst at some point. So, so scared. I just don't want to have to go through it again.
I am thinking of getting on birth control. I've also been looking into the endometriosis diet and vitamins. The funny/weird thing is I've already kind of been on the diet for years already. I need to work on cutting a few things out, but I've already been gluten free for a few years and dairy free for a very long time (6+ years).
I guess I am just curious as to who has had an endometrioma(s) and are you doing the diet and vitamin regimine or birth control or all three? I am thinking of doing all three.
I'm also curious as to those who have had one already - does it make you more prone to get them again? Is there anyone here who has had an endometrioma but never had one again? Or has everyone that has had an endometrioma had more than one? I'm just really wondering about that.
I want to do all I can to keep from getting another. That, and I also have a small fibroid in my uterus that I have to worry about now too.
