I had my first laparoscopy few weeks ago, the doctor found endometriosis stage 3. During my recovery I did a lot of research about the condition and the possible treatments. Total pelvic peritoneal excision is now being marketed as the proper way to go and real "cure". I mention this to my consultant and he said this surgery is being hyped and it’s becoming more in a business due to the high cost ( £10-15K). Also this surgery carries a highly risk to damage other organs. He suggested the Mirena coil as less risky treatment.
I know there is not point of comparison between them two but these are the options we have as NSH will not cover any TPE surgery cost with the right doctor.
The question is can Mirena coil really help to diminish Endo pain? I never had heavy periods but I do get l of migraines before and after my period. Any thoughts??
