Lap

Hi I am having a lap on the 28th of this month and they are putting the mernina coil in at the same time, I was diagnosed over 25 years ago through a lap and was told it was fused to my bowels, i am having a lap now as sex is so painful and have constant period pain aches eve tho not on a period, also bleeding last lot of bleeding was for 43 day, what I wanted to know was what will they do ? will they try and remove the endo or is it just to check how bad it is x

Hi, you need to ask them this before your surgery... A lap can be just diagnostic, but it can also involve treatment by ablation or excision of the endometriosis. Did no one explain what would be involved?

That makes it sounds like they don't plan any treatment. My gynae also suggested a lap just to check what was going on, so we could then discuss treatments afterwards. If you haven't had one for a while, that makes some sense. But good to check what you are consenting to before you go under...
