Hello everyone, I'm due to have a full hysterectomy on the 23rd due to large fibroids and undiagnosed endo. It was only found a month ago and basically everything is a mess inside and my bowel is stuck to my uterus.
I'm reading a book by an American doctor Tamer Seckin MD called The Doctor will See you now.
In this he talks about Laparoscopic deep excision surgery which he says only a few surgeons in the world do. I quote from the book:-
This involves all forms of endo are cut all the way down to the root (as is the thick surrounding sat tissue) through just a few small incisions made in the woman's body. Laparoscopic deep excision is performed with the use of very thin instruments, including cold scissors and a laparoscope which is fitted with a miniature video camera.
This doctor said this is the gold standard for removing endo.
Does anyone know of a surgeon who does this in the UK? Or does everyone use laser here?
My surgeon is going to cut away my endo when she opens me up which I hope will have the same effect but as I know endo can come back I want to be prepared.
Apologies if I'm asking stupid questions.....just feel in the dark....
Much love to all of you
