I am just looking for some advice and support. I was diagnosed with endo 4 years ago, it was Stage 2 and they removed all of it, 2 months post surgery I fell pregnant with my son. Last year the pain returned and I had and MRI and another laproscopy to determine the extent of the disease, the results were Stage 4 endo, small chocolate cysts and adenomyosis. I had uterine atery embolisation for the adenomyosis in May which has relieved my symtoms massively. I have now received my surgery date for the end of August to remove the endo - my left ovary and bowel are stuck to my uterus and I have extensive growth throughout my stomach and pelvis but no growth in the bowel or bladder. Can anyone advise me as to how painful this surgery is likely to be, how long it may take to recover and anything I should be aware of.
Thank you all in advance.
