I am due to have a pre op with a general fertility surgeon tomorrow in anticipation of lap in two weeks to confirm endo. I had an ultrasound that showed enlarged ovary stuck to uterus and the nurse who carried out advised she thought was endo. The gyno I've been seeing regularly over last year has been reluctant up until recent ultrasound to carry out investigations as put all symptoms down to health anxieties etc, but referred me for lap appt recently with general fertility surgeon following ultrasound, despite there being endo specialist within same hospital. I'm convinced I have endo as all the dots seem to add up...painful sex, blood in urine, feeling of constant uti's, but no infection, painful bowel movements with blood, pain in pelvis, shoulder pain, hip pain and sciatica, amongst others. I'm in my mid 30s and explains symptoms I've had since I wad 15. Should I go through with op or should I ask to be seen by endo specialist, even though will inevitably have to wait longer to have op? Advice would be very much appreciated.
