Bit of background on me, I have suffered severe pain for 11 years, no help from GP's as I'm sure you can understand. I had my first laparoscopy last November, they lasered deep endo on my right uterosacral ligament. In recent months the pain has returned, I had 4 months without a period until last week they returned with a vengeance.
I was encouraged to see my gynae that did the operation and he has recommended that I go to a BSGE clinic for further surgery. This has all come as a bit of a surprise to me, I thought that having one lap would help dramatically! He explained that he only lasered the endo but it actually needs to be cut out completely. My symptoms are pelvic pain, leg pain, IBS symptoms, sciatica and fatigue. Not an ideal combination
I was wondering if someone can tell me what to expect from the excision? Judging from my symptoms could I have endo on my bowels or sciatic nerve? I'm worried that because my first op wasn't done my a specialist that he may have missed more endo. Is it likely that after so many years I just have endo in one place?
I feel so isolated by this disease and angry that it's got to this point.
