I was due to have total pelvic peritoneum excision for endo Last Friday. When the doc looked inside he found such as small amount of endo he wasn’t sure whether to do such a radical operation, so he didn’t and sent off my tissue for biopsy. This came back today confirming it was endo, including endo cyst on my ovary, but he thought removing my entire peritoneum was too radical an approach given how little I have.
I have posted before saying my main symptom is not pain (I can handle what pain I get) as much as the chronic lethargy and in particular complete lack of focus/concentration so I am no longer able to work. I have had lots of blood tests all come back fine so it seems the endo is causing this. Can anyone give me advice as to what to do – should I have this radical surgery or is there another way I can treat these side affects for the moment – such as with drugs given to ADHD patients or anti-depressants to improve my concentration so I can raise my quality of life and work again?
I would really value some advice - I don't know what to do. I worry if I have this major surgery, as I am clearly so sensitive to so small amount of endo, there is the good chance it will come back in a few years somewhere else and I will be back to where I am now re lethargy, lack of concentration and inability to work.
