I have just spent the weekend in hospital having tests to see what is causing long list of pain and other symptoms. After having a normal ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound I was told that I have 3x endometrioma's on my left ovary. I was then told by the surgeon that I would have to wait 6 weeks to see a gynaecologist and check if they'd grown. They said I have endometriosis. Other than these things and to give me paracetamol the surgeon (general) could not give me any more info as he doesn't know much about the condition and to wait until my gynae appointment. I have since read the only way to diagnose endo is by laparoscopy. So now I'm confused... Do I have it or not? Can you tell without a laparoscopy?
