Does anyone here suffer from Adenomyosis?

I've recently been diagnosed with Adenomyosis at the age of 27. I had a c-section 2 years ago and thought the pain i was feeling was just lingering effects from that surgery. However, things evolved into extreme tenderness and really irregular periods. I had a laparoscopy done a month ago and in addition to a paratubal cyst, they discovered signs of adenomyosis ( which i've been told is quite similar to endometriosis). My doctor's solution is a partial hysterectomy, at my discretion. He's not real anxious to do one on someone my age, but if i decide its what i want done, he'll do it. I'm curious, will a hysterectomy cure me from all of this? Are there other alternatives? Has anyone else had a hysterectomy before age 30 - and if so, was it worth it?
