HI. I had my 2nd laparoscopy on Thursday. My first one was March 2013 where my diagnosis was found.
This time, with a different surgeon due to a referral from 1st gynae surgeon who decided I "only had minimal endometriosis when she went in and removed it and cut all the dense adhesions so cannot be in any pain and cannot do anything for me as nothing is wrong now". Yes I kid you not!
Anyway, both MYSELF and surgeon thought I may find I have some more adhesions or ENDO spots but he wanted to have a good look because of shoddy work done by 1st doc.
A 1he slot turned into a 3hr slot under anaesthetic. I was poorly after so he couldn't speak to me, so rang me on the ward the next morning. He said and I quote "found lots of ENDO in there, big chunks of it, on bladder, top of vagina, back of womb, bowel, pelvic cavity, ovaries." He said he burned it all away (diathermy-helicare) and was hopeful after post option recovery I shouldn't need more surgery and should be in much less pain, if not hopefully none at all, but will see me in 2 months and will continue to monitor me until he is sure one way or another. He had to do quite a lot of work in there and said to expect a slower recovery time than last time.
Now, recovery and pain right now all makes sense. Fine.
BUT what I don't understand is how did I go from a few spots of ENDO on ovaries and peritoneal wall, to 1yr 5months later when he found such a lot? What does his wording of "chunks" of ENDO mean? I didn't even know you could get it at top of vagina, but bladder etc as well? Only place the same is ovaries. There was no adhesions this time so am guessing that's due to the little between ops. What happened is what I don't get. So far spread, big - use if words like chunks to describe me both confuses and alarms me - and if he used diathermy then surely it will come back again?
Any help or advice will be helpful right now plz. Internet searching isnt coming up with much good right now.
