I've recently had a lap and have been diagnosed with endo. I was still a bit out of it after op when surgeon came to speak to me, so not sure of what stage I was classed as having, I couldn't think to ask questions at the time. I remember he said they removed a small amount and left some behind that is all. I'm concerned that they left some because I'm under the impression this is a condition which 'spreads' over time.
I was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed as stage 1 and progressively got worse over the years? Even with diathermy and medicines prescribed to keep it at bay. Or if anyone has been the opposite where treatment has kept control of the stage their endo is at?
Basically, I'm just looking to see if anyone has had any regrets with their course of treatment and how they would have done things differently perhaps? Or if anyone's treatment has successfully kept endo at early stages?
I'm sorry to ask a question which will undoubtedly have wide and varied answers. I just want to avoid making any bad decisions which could make things worse in the future.
Thank you in advance
