you are only the 2nd person i have heard of (besides myself) who had adnemyosis. like you, i am curious about the numbers. it took me 2 years to agree to the surgery after i was dx'd. but it's the best thing i ever did for myself. a lot of people believe hormones are very involved in fms, and i have heard fm can flare big time during menopause. i kept my ovaries, so am now going through menopause.
