I'm awaiting a diagnostic laparoscopy to see if I have endo, but I'm just a bit confused about what I've been told.
When seeing the Gyne, he said that they'd perform the laparoscopy and if any endo is found, they'll remove it. However, a nurse told me in my pre-assessment that all they'll do is look to see if a I have any endo and diagnose it. They'll then arrange for me to have another laparoscopy to remove it. I did question the nurse, and she said that it is only a diagnostic surgery (but they may remove small amounts if they feel that they should).
To me, it doesn't make sense to have two operations: one to diagnose and then one after I've healed to treat the problem. Surely it would cause more problems to keep having laparoscopy (this is going to be my second one) and it would be easier to remove the endo at the time as diagnosing it?
If anyone could help make sense of this situation, I'd be very grateful as I am pretty confused. I also don't want to go through two operations as this means going through the pain and having to take more time off work, when it could just be done at once?
