Just thought I'd update everyone of my experience. Am currently still in hospital following excision of recto-vaginal endometriosis. I was in theatre for over 8 hours at a specialist centre. They are happy that they have removed it all - a big nodule pulling down my rectum and through my ureter and then another in my vaginal wall. I have a stent fitted in my ureter which will be removed under general anaesthetic in 6 weeks time. They will check then whether my ureter has sealed back together by using a dye. i have to say that the experience of being treated at a specialist centre has been amazing and that its so much more understood and respected.
