Moderate - Severe endometriosis

Hi ladies. I had my diagnostic laparoscopy last Monday at a BSGE centre and I was told I have moderate to severe endometriosis.

I have to go back to discuss further surgery in December. I would just like some feedback on any of you that have suffered from moderate - severe endometriosis and what procedure they used to treat it.

Thanks in advance.

If you look at the NHS contract for treatment of stage 3,4 and rectovaginal endo the procedure they must follow is laid out. It should be excised - ie completely removed and this may be by mechanical means (using laparoscopic scissors) or by laser.

I guess that means usually there will be a team a surgeons (colorectal and urologists) to treat the disease at various places
