In 2003 I was diagnosed with both as well as endometerosis, when I had my second laparoscopy they didn't find any signs of any of those, just the adhesion that attaches my pelvic sidewall to my colon.
The surgeon I saw a week or so ago does not want to remove the adhesion because it might not alleviate my pain, my gynocologist was discussing removing my uterus to help with the pelvic pain that isn't associated with the adhesion. I go back to the surgeon next week and if she doesn't want to do surgery on me I will seek out a second opinion because I cannot live the rest of my life with the pain that I have. It has already cost me years of my life and I do not wish to continue this way for the rest of my life.
All I can say is that every single person I know who has had a hysterectomy is happy with it. Even my friend who had a bout with cervical cancer and lost her uterus in her mid-twenties. She's got two sons and once in a while, she wonders if she'd ever have a daughter, but she said that's a fleeting thought and she's happy not having the monthly issues that come along with it. (I beg my doctor for one every time I go in, but that's another story).
Good luck with whatever they do to help.
