I found out at my regular annual OB/GYN appointment that I have three large cysts on my ovaries. After an MRI it was confirmed that I likely have endometriosis on both of my ovaries as well as multiple other places including the Douglas cul-de-sac and the peritoneum surface of the pelvis. The thing is, I really haven't had any symptoms or pain prior to finding this out. I have always had heavy periods, but aside from that I occassionaly will have a sharp pain around the area of my ovaries, but nothing major at all. So I feel very lucky that at least at this point I don't have any significant pain. My doctor recommends that I have the lap surgery done to remove the 3 cysts and any other lesions he might find. My question for all of you is should I have the surgery now if I'm not having any pain or symptoms? For additional information, I'm 33 years old and single. So I have no plans to have children any time soon. I feel like having the surgery now seems drastic since I'm not having pain, but I worry that waiting will make it worse and potentially do more damage to my ovaries. So any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated!
