I had my first ever laparoscopic surgery to remove endometriosis just under 2 weeks ago, I knew already I had small endometriomas, one on each ovary after they showed up during a scan. During the surgery my consultant told me these were removed, as well as a lot of endo found significantly at the back of uterus and spots on bladder. I had the surgery the day before ovulation was due, and spotted slightly after the surgery as I also had my tubes checked at the same time (which were thankfully clear!).
Before I had the surgery I spotted brown gunk before pretty much every period for at least 4-5 days before the full red flow would start, I always thought this was due to the cysts.
Have any of you ladies experienced this? It's like brown stringy sludgy gunk! I thought (perhaps naively) that after the surgery this brown discharge would stop, but clearly not!!
Any feedback, thoughts greatly appreciated this is so frustrating, I thought the surgery would fix things.
Is there anything else I'm missing that can cause brown spotting?
