Diagnosed with mild hydrbephtosis, ovarian cyst, have endometriosis, have heavy bleeding. Help?

Hello Doctor: I am 46 years. I have been diagnosed ( u/s, nuclear imaging) with right mild hydrometer / hydrbephtosis but no stones no pain or symptoms and normall urinalysis . However I also have endometriosis and right ovarian cyst . after laproscopy surgeon was of the opinion that ovarian cyst is not pressing the ureter . So I have two questions 1) since I don t have any problem now and as dr is suggesting to have stent in ureter ( which has it s own complications, like pain and excessive urination etc) how much would it be beneficial for the hydro...Second, in order to manage the endo and heavy bleeding ( 25-28 days cycle with 6 -7 days of periods) what could be done. I know of birth pill as an option. I personally feel if endometriosis is controlled it might help reduce scarring and relieve the obstruction on ureter ( if that s the case). I will greatly appreciate your expert opinion. Looking forward to your response. P. S. : hydro was diagnosed year and half before during routine gyne u/s and other results are more or less same over the time. Thanks and regards. Suha

Hello Suha.

First of all, the stent placement would be the best, most effective and plausible option.

Next, endometriosis treatment ranges from hormonal control through medication, dilation and curretage like procedures, birth control and many other forms of medication. You could approach your (OBGYN) doctor for immediate control and management of this condition.

Although both these conditions are not inter-related, you experience more discomfort from the endometriosis as the symptoms are visible. Addressing both conditions will be most beneficial.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
