So long story short - NHS lap 16th December confirmed stage 1 endo and "removed" via diathermy. Private healthcare lap 28th March confirmed STAGE 3 endo (due to not being removed!!!!) spread throughout my entire pelvis and removed PROPERLY via excision.
I had my post op consult with the surgeon yesterday and endo had been removed from pretty much everywhere possible within my pelvis and also from the outer shell of my ovaries.
Thankfully and fingers crossed my fertility hasn't been affected and I should be able to conceive a lot easier now.
I just thought of a question I didn't think to ask and was just wondering - if the endo comes back and I become pregnant, will it harm the baby? Has anyone had a baby whilst having live endo?
