I had my 1st Benenden consultation and after reading my notes from my NHS dr he asked some questions and then said had anyone checked for ligament problems. I said no so he did an intetnal, got md to make two fists and put the under my bottom. He then felt about until he pressed on something that was very uncomfortable. He said I had thickening of my utero-sacral ligaments and it was probably endo. After me saying about how heavy my periods are and that I turned down the mirena coil we settled on a lap to diagnosis & treat my endo and I asked for an ablation to end my periods as I'm in my 40's and completed my family. He said this was a good option and as I got on well with Decapeptyl I would have 2/3 months of that before the op and then prob some after.
So am set to have my op in Aug now due to the prep and iM away in July.
I am happy with this but now just questioning the op & recovery. Was told depends on who operates as to if its cut out or burnt out and that because he would be 'stripping my pelvis' I would be in a lot of pain so I would prob need to be in overnight. Has anyone had endo these ligaments and if so what was done and how was your recovery and long term recovery as thinking ligaments must do an important job of holding things together. Also allowing a healthy and pain free sex life. I have yet to sign op sheet he said it would be completed and gone through on the day.
Does anyone have any experience of endometriosis???
