Hi everyone. After many years of excruciating pain every period - docs constantly telling me it was normal. I finally got referred to a gynaecologist in Dec 2016 and had a laparoscopy 5 days ago which diagnosed endometriosis. It is covering my bowel bladder and uterus so my gyn was unable to remove any of it as she needs a specialist bowel team. Since then I have been reading up about bowel surgery & it certainly sounds scary.
Has anyone had bowel surgery for endometriosis - how long was your hospital stay and how long was recovery? Was it diagnosed through laparoscopy? If so how long did you have to wait for the 2nd op?
I have also being trying to get pregnant for over a year and now worried this is a huge set back (I am 35).
