I'm wondering if anyone could give me any advise. I'm 26 and was diagnosed in 2013 with stage 4 endo. In my laparoscopy they found my womb and bowel are stuck together. Yesterday I saw a specialist surgeon who specialises in very severe cases on endo. I have been advised to have a combined surgery to separate my womb from my bowel but they said the risks of causing damage to my other organs is higher than a regular laparoscopy. I'm in a dilemma as to wether to go ahead with the surgery or not. I feel that I don't have enough info to know wether it's worth me going ahead with it given the risks. I also have to go onto zoladex injections (I think that's what they're called) this also concerns me too as in 2013 I was put on prostap and have never felt so terrible in all my life. The operation has to be done in 2 parts. It all sounds pretty scary and I don't know what to do. I'm trying to weigh up if it's more of a risk to have the op or not to have the op? Has anyone else had/need this surgery? If so what would be your advise? Also does anyone know what the risks are of damage being caused in one of these more complex operations? Thanks in advance!!
