Has anyone been told they have mild endo in pelvic area on 1st lap for the main problem to be located in other areas?
I had a lap last Sept and mild endo was removed from my pelvic wall. One patch was located just in front of my bladder. My consultant said I did not need any follow up with him but if my symptoms did not improve or came back then to go back to GP and get a referral back to him.
Prior to this I had been going back and forth between my GP and the Urology department of my local hospital because initially they thought it was kidney stones. My CT scan did show what they thought might be a small stone stuck in my ureter but when they operated they could not locate anything. They said my bladder looked OK but the tubes were tight so was a bit difficult to have a proper look! To be honest they were really unhelpful and just told me it wasn’t a urological problem.
My question is has anyone else had similar experience? Although initially after the lap I did feel much better over the course of 6 months the same symptoms along with some bowel issues have come back. I have asked to be referred back to the consultant who did the lap so I can ask for an MRI scan to rule out anything else. This may be a stupid question but can endo be found within the ureter so not picked up in a lap? If it was on the outside would my consultant have been able to see it?
Any advice given would be greatly received before I see this consultant again xx
