I was diagnosed with Endo back in 2006 when I had a laparoscopy and felt so much better after the first operation. I’ve been having a lot of pain again recently and I’m on the waiting list to have surgery again (although the doctor said I could change my mind if I don’t want to do it). The first time I had the laparoscopy I didn't know what it entailed, I went into it quite blindly and also a bit in denial of the possibility I might have Endo. This time round I’m really scared. I’ve been watching YouTube videos of surgeries, which on one hand has reassured me to know exactly what is being done to my body. On the other hand it has scared me even more to know what’s being done, and how easy it is for it to go wrong. I’ve been reading stories of people with damaged nerves from surgery or how surgery has made it worse. I wanted to find out how everyone else’s experience has been with the laparoscopy? Has it improved your symptoms? Do you feel better/worse? How was the surgery itself? I feel quite lost and confused on this, if I knew for sure it would make me feel better I wouldn’t hesitate to have it done. There’s no one I can speak to about this and I felt the doctor was polite but I was in and out of there in 5mins, I just signed the surgery form and didn't have time to register properly.
