Hi everyone, I had an appointment yesterday with the gynaecologist and they have said if I had endometriosis it would definitely have been found back in February when I had my first Laparoscopy which was carried out by one of the most experienced endo specialists in the area. The gynaecologist I am now seeing is at another hospital as it was where I had been previously admitted for pain. They have said to me they will carry out another laparoscopy just for my peace of mind and for me to finally believe I don't have endo, they also said whilst I'm under they will insert the coil. My pain has got increasingly worse since my last laparoscopy and I am now on morphine patches and liquid morphine when needed to keep on top of the pain. I do want to have a 2nd exploratory laparoscopy because I still believe deep down I do have endometriosis and that it has just been missed. The doctor really scared me though with the worry of possible complications, she said to me that if they happen to catch my bowel during the operation which is very possible as they have had it happen several times at that hospital I could end up with a bag! I understand they have to make you aware of possible risks and complications but I feel she went to far with the possibility of it happening, she has also put doubt in my head about the surgeon if this has happened often at this hospital. Can anyone give me some advice or opinions on this because I don't know whether I should just try to get referred back to the original surgeon who carried out the laparoscopy or whether I should just avoid the operation all together but then never know if I could have had a diagnosis. I am still sick to death of hearing that some people just feel pain for no reason or that it could be IBS or that it is stress related, I know my body and I know how much I am suffering! Like I would actually choose to be in pain and live my life drugged up to the eye balls. Thanks x
