Seven different doctors over the past 10 years told me I had endo on the basis of my symptoms, pelvic examinations and ultrasound scans. Two cysts were visible on the ultrasound scans - one on each ovary averaging 4cm in diameter.
I started Depo injections last May. I had a laparoscopy in August. By the time I had the laparascopy, the cysts had gone.
The surgeon said he thought they must have been ovarian cysts (not endo) and they had burst on their own or else responded to Depo injections.
My questions are:
Do endo patches/cysts come and go?
If no cysts were present on the day, how can doctor be sure they weren't endo patches? Would endo patches leave a scar, for example?
Is it possible I have endometriosis even though there were no cysts present on day of op?
Thank you for any advice.
