Is Lupron truly the next step after endometrial excision?

My 20 year old daughter just had endometrial excision of the uterus, bladder, pelvic wall, & colon. The doctor said she did not want to remove the endometrial tissue from the ovaries or the fallopian tubes because they could be damaged & jeopardize her future fertility. She wants to put her on Lupron for six months to shrink whatever tissue is left. Is this OK?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and welcome!

I hope your daughter is having a speedy recovery. As you probably know, Lupron is used for a variety of reasons, including prostate cancer in men and for the reduction of estrogen in women.

There are some worrisome side effects with Lupron - one is that it may contribute to osteoporosis but that is seen with long-term use. Six months would not be considered long-term use.

We cannot say whether Lupron is really necessary for your daughter because the answer is based on her specific case - your daughter needs to sit down and discuss the pros and cons of being in this medication for sex months.

Best of luck to you and your family,
