I've only come across this page recently so this is my first post.
My gyno booked me in for a laparoscopy to check for rectal endometriosis after I described my symptoms. He made it seem like the riskiest thing ever and at the end said 'let's hope it's not that'. It was all so off putting and after reading posts related to endometriosis in the bowels on here, I'm petrified.
I postponed my pre-op assessment because I wasn't given enough time to think about it. Ultimately I know this will be my only option to help the pain in some way.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has been diagnosed with this type of endometriosis and if your laparoscopy went smoothly? The last thing I want is to be opened up, to then be told it was too risky to remove...
