Well do I have it or not?!

Just back from an 8am laparoscopy to diagnose and treat any endo. I've been in terrible pain daily for over a year, horrid periods and general other symptoms. After I'd come round from my operation, the consultant told me that he couldn't see any Endo but wasnt discounting I had it, as it could be microscopic.. After Id had a cup of tea and some food, the nurse went through my operation notes and read that i had had some endo removed. Im very confused.

Hi that is very confusing, if he couldn't see any endo then how could he remove it. Did you have your laparoscopy through a general gynaecologist?


Yes, at a local hospital. It wasnt one of the registerd centres. I'll see how I am after recovering from this and take yet another trip to my GP


Yeah I would ask to see the report that they get sent then say you'd like a referral to a endo centre. Take things easy and don't over do it. Get plenty of rest. Take care
