Peritoneal lesions?

Hello everyone

Just been reading through my discharge letter after my lap and for procedures it says

'Excision of endometriosis/lesion peritoneum '

What is lesion peritoneum? My doctor did come round and talk to me after the op but I was completely out of it and just cried! My follow up is in 4 months so I'm just wondering what that actually means!

lesions in peritoneum is often known as deep endometriosis often a mri can confirm this but laprostopy are more accurate to confirm this but it depends on how skilled the surgeon often its has to be a endometriosis specialist in specialist centre also called a bsge centre often have to carry out this type of surgery as general gynaecology are not skilled enough to treat this type of endometriosis xx

That you. My general gynae treated this during my surgery. She isn't registered nor is the hospital as a bsge specialist but I was treated at a specialist womens centre and she's done an amazing job and done a lot of work! But I'm still on the recovery process so we will see!! Bsge might be next x


keep fingers crossed hopefully it will help you x
