I have endometriosis on my bladder that has grown through the bladder wall and the nodule is very close to the trisome area where the tubes to the kidneys connect. I also have a large rectovaginal nodule.
Next Thursday I will be going for surgery and the urologist said that they will have to remove part of my bladder and re implant the tubes at another part of the bladder. There’s a danger that if they have to remove too much of the bladder it will be too small to function. After I have to have kidney stents for a while. In addition there is a worry that when they remove the recto vaginal nodule it is attached to the bowl. As the nodule has grown fully through the vaginal wall there is also danger of a vaginal fistula
I’ve been told by the urologist that from my scans it’s unlikely they can do this by keyhole surgery and it may be a large up and down incision. I was wondering exactly what this means and if any of you ladies have had these procedures before?
All the best jo
