Did they remove the lesions or was it just a diagnostic laparoscopy? You can always as for a second or third opinion from a different consultant. Trying to find one who specialises in endo can be difficult but can be done. X

Hi - if you had adhesions in your Pouch of Douglas (cul de sac) then you are likely to have endo beneath and may also have deep 'nodules' of endo causing pain. This is rectovaginal endo and is often missed in general gynaecology. You will need a rectovaginal examination and MRI to see what is going on and should be referred to a specialist centre.Click on my name and look at my post on POD endo and the one on how to find a specialist centre. Get back if you have any problems getting a referral. x
