my consultant thinks i have endometriosis and i currently have prostap injections. last week i had my 4th monthly injection out of the original 6 prescribed. overall they have helped a bit, probably because my periods have now stopped, but i am still in lots of pain daily. i was hoping to have a laparoscopy soon as i understand this is the only way to know that it is endometriosis for sure. however, i have seen 2 gynacologists that are both reluctant to do this as i had a kidney removed when i was 2 (21 years ago) and they have stated that because of this surgery can't be as accurate and it is possible implications eg they may cut in to my bowel etc. instead of a laparascopy (which i originally thought i would be having after 6 months if the injections dont help) i have now been prescribed 12 injections and to start hormone release therapy on the 6th then to take cerzatte afterwards. ( was on cerzaette for 4 years and 3 or 4 months after coming off this is when my problems started. i have also been discharged by my consultant as i cant be on the books for that length of time - i am at a private hospital under nhs i dont know if that makes a difference)
what im trying to find out is wether anyone has had laparascopy that has also had previous surgery and has it been fine or has their been consequences (eg cutting in to bowel as mentioned above). i am in lots of pain on a daily basis and i am desperate for a diagnosis really and dont know whether to try and "push" for a laparascopy.
