I had a laparoscopy in May and ended up with two tears to my small bowel and bruising to my large bowel. It was obviously a very negative experience and I know that most procedures aren't like this!! However, because of what went wrong I didn't receive any diagnosis other than 'old endo' and 'pelvic scarring' and nothing was treated because obviously the second operation was to repair the damage caused by the first operation. I've now been to a specialist for advice and was told basically that I might need to have another lap in order to remove the endo, but because I'm not ready to try for children yet he suggested that I could wait a few years before having the lap.
But what I didn't realise until I had already left was - if I leave the endo to potentially grow over the next few years, does this not mean I may harm my chances of having a child later on even if I had a lap? i.e the endo could attach to places that it can't be removed from? I just wondered if anyone else was in this situation where they need to decide whether to do it now or wait, and what you all think.
Really appreciate any advice as although I'm not ready for children it's quite upsetting to be faced with this!
