Hi i'm new to this site, so hope i'm using it correctly?!
Had my 5th lap yesterday after 12 years of suffering from endo.( i luckily have 7yr old twins after much trying and a loss at 5 moths gestation) So my childbearing years are over. I had ablation 3 years ago due to heavy bleeding which failed as i'm bleeding nearly as much as i was before. Also have a constant presence of cysts (all sorts) on my one remaining ovary. (had the left one removed along with ablation 3 yrs ago) That's a brief history!
After a lot of pain in the last 6 months, i have been referred to a gastrointestinal surgeon who performed a colonoscopy and endoscopy and mri as the doc thought my latest probs were due to something higher up! All those tests clear thankfully.
Then back to the gynaecologist for scan and laparoscopy which i had yesterday. My bowel is stuck to the abdominal wall , my womb stuck to my bladder. Plenty of scar tissue everywhere due to endo being treated in the past. My remaining ovary has lots of little cysts in it and a choccie cyst behind it.
After coming round from the anaesthetic i was told he hadn't done anything only took photo's as he's strongly suggesting hysterectomy but he will try to save my only ovary as i'm only 38 and need the hormones! The chances of saving the ovary aren't great may i add.
I feel groggy today due to anaesthetic etc, and upset at the prospect of hysterectomy as it's such a major op (he said he will need a bowel surgeon to help him)
Any advice from anyone who's had a similar experience or condition or decision to make would be so helpful!
