I have been diagnosed with severe endometriosis (two endometriomas and two endometriotic nodules) with it beginning to affect my bowel, and adenymosis. I've had two laps - one as recently as February and another about 10 years ago. My consultant, who has come highly recommended by some users here via private messaging, has suggested the removal of my left ovary, left Fallopian tube (which the cysts surround) and my uterus. I have two questions:
- What is the estimated recovery time from such a procedure?
- I know the upsides of keeping my one ovary but what are the downsides, if any?
Your advice is appreciated. Thank you!
