Hope you are all as well as can be. As promised update below. I'm a little confused and anxious I may have not made the right decision.
As you know I'm seeing a great endo specialist privately thanks to my work helping out. Following my first consultation and exam he found nodules and suspected deep recto vaginal disease so requested I have an MRI with contrast dye and that he would prefer to then do an investigative lap, cystoscopy, colonoscopy (I think that's correct name) etc to see exactly what is going on to plan my excision surgery. I saw him yesterday for follow up and as expected endo could be seen on MRI with various nodules and adhesions. He has said to save me money we can go straight to excision surgery but he will prepare for worst case scenario. He will perform total peritoneal excision, remove adhesions, endo and attached ovary and various parts (bladder and bowel I think) He said more but I didn't take it all in. Things like shaving bowel, a complete wash out, stents and looking in bladder were mentioned. Sorry I should have taken notes.
However he said I should have a 3 month prostap injection to stop my ovaries to help during surgery. I had this injection yesterday and I'm now worried that this was the wrong decision after reading some horror stories here. What do you ladies think? I have absolute faith in my doc but was surprised when prostap was brought up as from reading various sites I thought we shouldn't take this before surgery. He did said if it was for an exploratory lap not a good idea but for my full surgery, TPE etc it is what he recommends. Any other ladies had this? All feedback good or bad most welcome.
