I had a laparoscopy four weeks ago, stage 2 endometriosis was found and removed (I was shown the pictures). I was also informed that I have a fibroid which is blocking the neck of my womb. I was advised by my gynaecologist that my only option is to have a hysterectomy, removing the womb but leaving the ovaries. I have since had a second opinion from a specialist in Elland, West Yorkshire (I am sure you know who he is). He informed me that I will still have endometriosis and will probably face more procedures to remove it unless I have it removed using TPE and also at the same time he would perform a hysterectomy as the fibroid will just keep getting larger and will cause issues as well. Has anyone else had TPE procedure carried out and was it successful. I am only asking as although I do have insurance there is still quite a large shortfall - but if the procedure is a cure then I am happy to pay to be pain free. Also, I am still in pain from the lap which was done, just internal bruising but it does not seem to be getting any better. I also feel so fortunate that I also have IC which was diagnosed last May and I am on meds and regular instillations for this. I was told that IC and endometriosis are usually found together, if you have one you are more than likely to have the other. I am fortunate in that I live only a few miles away from Elland so do not have to travel the country for appointments. I am just not sure what to do - Do I just have a hysterectomy done by my original gynae and see what happens or have both done at the same time?
