I had my diagnostic lap in Feb, follow up appointment a couple of weeks ago and was referred to the endo specialist (accredited centre) who I see on Monday. I didn't expect the appt to come through so quickly.
The findings of my lap:
Severe pelvic endo with a frozen Pelvis involving the rectovaginal pouch and the pouch of douglas.
Left ovarian endometrioma
Abnormal attachments to right pelvic wall.
Twisted ovarian pedicle on left side but no evidence of necrosis
Right ovary appeared normal but deeply involved in adhesions involving bowel and fallopian tubes
Fimbrial ends of fallopian tubes unable to be seen clearly as they were deeply embedded in adhesions
(No surgery done to treat the problems due to their complexities)
I would like to be better armed at my appointment on Monday - at my follow up I was hopeless and didn't even ask if I had anything done during the lap, I wrote to them afterwards - unfortunately due to lack of child care I need to attend the appointment on my own so I won't have another set of ears or someone else to think of questions to ask on the spot. I really want to be prepared and armed.
I'm looking for some advice about the right type of questions to ask. I have written down a list of the above and will ask him to explain what each of them mean and what the treatment options. (and take notes!)
I don't think I will be fobbed off, but is there anything that is commonly offered that I shouldn't be accepting as "treatment" at this stage? At my first gynae appointment, I was told to go away for 6 months and keep a pain diary which I did without hesitation because I didn't know better. I am worried that I will be told to do something and I will be unknowingly delaying the inevitable for 6 months if that makes sense.
And if you have read this far, thank you! Any advice would be very helpful xx
