Hi, I had a miscarriage when I was 26 which was 12 weeks and since then a further 4 early miscarriages. I haven't been able to get pregnant at all despite trying for 4 years. I have had endometriosis for 9 years. I was finally diagnosed after 6 years and had 2 laparoscopy surgeries. The first one nothing was done and the second I had diathermy which got rid of all endo. I was pain free for 2 years, but I have the pain back.
I saw my gynae today who decided that the best course of action was to refer me to a fertility consultant instead of another laparoscopy. I told them my concern was that this would leave me with the pain and there was no guarantee anyway. She said that they would not do another laparoscopy until I lose weight.
Has anyone else been told to lose weight for a laparoscopy?
I feel absolutely distraught that I'm now stuck with this pain and I think the fertility consultant will just tell me to lose weight anyway.
