I've had endo symptoms on and off for quite a long time now, though have never been diagnosed despite numerous visits to doctors/ hospital/ gynaecologists over the years. I'm now 27 and married to my husband who I have been with for almost 12 years. We've recently brought up the subject of trying for a baby, and in fact were going to commence the trying very soon.
Today when I finished work I had a voicemail from Worcester Hospital advising me that they've had a cancellation for a laparoscopy that I've been on the waiting list for for almost a year, to take place in Kidderminster. I don't think I can name specific surgeons on this site but he is an excision specialist, apparently.
I've searched a bit through the posts on here and have seen a few which suggest that excisive surgery can affect future fertility, yet I've seen others which state the exact opposite. I'm now worrying slightly about this aspect - can anyone advise?
Also concerned that the surgery is in fact two weeks today - I've not yet had a pre-op, have not discussed it with my manager as yet and don't know how much time I will need off work (I'm a Secretary so mostly desk based) - please can anyone advise regarding the time off work I'd need roughly? Up until today I really thought the surgery wasn't going to go ahead so it's a lot to think about all of a sudden.
Thanks for your help in advance.
