Picture your yard full of dandelions -Probably blown over from your neighbors yard :). As you look over your lawn you realize that you have a few options.
· Ignore them (just deal with your symptoms)
· Buy some green "lawn paint" and color them in. It hides them well, but doesn't stop them from growing and eventually wears off (hormone therapy)
· Mow the lawn. Your yard will look great for a few days. (surgical treatment with superficial ablation or lasering)
· Spray the yard with weed killer. For dandelions this works very well. Unfortunately this is not an option for endometriosis.
· Dig each dandelion up by the root. (excision surgery)
· Tear down your house. Doesn't make much sense, does it? (hysterectomy)
· Look out your window and convince yourself that you are crazy. There really aren't any dandelions out there ("it's all in your head")
Clearly there is one option available for endometriosis that gives a hope of getting rid of the disease. Yes excision can be very time consuming and difficult, but it is the best option we have of actually treating endometriosis.
