Hi all I need a bit of advice/ reassurance please. I had a lap in July and was told after the surgery 'yes you have endometriosis' that's all I knew till today. So I went to see the consultant for follow up ( ended up being someone different). She said I have minimal active endo on uteroscacral ligaments, ovarian fossas, urethra, back of womb and peritenium. She also said I had scarring.
I told her I'm in so much pain for most of the month and she said 'oh you shouldn't be in any pain' 'we can sort it out by shutting down your ovaries, there is no need for surgery'
I asked her about excision as I am booked on with a consultant in yorkshire for surgery in oct. She said (I kid you not) 'what is that?' She had no idea that you could remove endo by cutting it away!
So I've decided to still go ahead with the private consultant as he seems to know his stuff. However I'm beginning to doubt myself again as I have for many years being told there is nothing wrong with me and that I'm just weak. It still pops into my mind that endo might not be causing my pain even though the symptoms match and obviously I've been diagnosed. Drs always bloody bring me down!! Any advice? Thanks
