Hello, I'm new and hoping to get to know others.
I had a laparoscopy 2 days ago and was diagnosed with endometriosis. It was too extensive for them to do any treatment at the time so I will get follow-up to discuss options. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.
I guess I am lucky to have had a consultant who was really clued up, who sent me for the surgery. I came in complaining of pain during sex, and other mostly mild pelvic aches and pains. Small persistent cyst was seen on ultrasound. I have been trying to conceive for nearly a year without success. Didn't all add up to much in my mind, so it was a shock to find out what a complete mess I've got inside me.
My tubes were flushed out and the surgeon said I "could be fertile" so should keep trying. Naturally I wonder what will be the next steps, surgical treatment and/or IVF? Will just have to wait for my next appointment to see. Meanwhile the stats are not very encouraging
