I was diagnosed with stage 4 endo in march - 5 months of prostap injections followed but did not really do much to ease symptoms or stop bleeding really. so i have been referred from my original gynae to an endo specialist who is performing a laparotomy early next year to remove the recto-vaginal and detach my ovaries from the uterus wall which are completely stuck to the back of uterus on both sides. he also advised i have it on my bowel and need an mri to see if it is penetrated into the bowel. if so he has said a bowel surgeon will need to accompany him in surgery to remove it. I am more bothered about trying to rescue my chances of fertility rather than getting rid of pain. i must have a high pain threshold as he has said its one of the worst cases he has ever seen yet its never really bothered me too much i just got on with painful periods and break through bleeding thinking i was just one of the unlucky ones. so if i say to leave the endo on my bowel beside pain are there any other complications?
