Hi, I've been following this site for a while now but I've just got my laparoscopy date through and just wanted to ask a few questions. My consultant has told me I have stage 4 endometriosis due to a number of large chocolate cysts on my ovaries. I was just wondering wether I should expect an overnight stay in hospital and how long surgery is likely to last.
She's fairly convinced that they will be more than just the cysts to be removed but obviously they won't know until they go in. It's all so scary and confusing. I only had confirmation of the endometriosis 2 weeks ago so it's gone really fast.
