I need some help! I received my post-op letter yesterday (had my lap on 21st December), but some of the wording in it is just completely confusing! See below some of the things that I don't understand what they signify...
- The Peritoneum was quite angry & red looking with pocketing suggestive of Endometriosis on the left side of the rectum & also on the right side wall
- The ureter had to be deflected upwards to excise the peritoneum on the left side from just below the ureter into the para rectal space on the left
I've tried Googling the above to find some answers, but I really can't come up with anything that helps
I understand where the rectum is, obviously, but where on earth / what is the para rectal space & what is meant by my peritoneum being red & angry & the pocketing?!!
