Choices: Only a doctor who met and examined you can answer this. But, i recommend surgery for patients who are good candidates. Surgery is the only way to make a firm diagnosis, results are generally excellent, and though recurrences happen, they often don't. Lupron (leuprolide) can defintiely help with pain, but: no diagnosis, no fix, expensive, symptoms, and pain comes back when you discontinue.
