Hi, I've been dealing with the possibility of Endometriosis for a handful of years now, and I finally made an appointment to see the gynecologist at my local hospital. I am going to the appointment to ask questions and to see if the laparoscopy is for me, and if I should have the lap with them, or pay to go to a specialist privately.
I have issues with my chest and I believe it to be Endo on the diaphragm, but all doctors I have seen have dismissed my chest issues as something else. I plan on asking many questions about Endo on the diaphragm and I will find out what they will do about it during surgery- though from experience, I don't think they will do anything.
I've never had a laparoscopy before. I don't want to leave the appointment with questions not asked, (like I usually do) so I want to prepare what I will say.
Does anyone have any questions they wished they had asked when deciding for or against a laparoscopy? Or any ideas on what to ask? I believe I will leave the appointment agreeing to a laparoscopy with the general gyne at the local hospital and asking them to book me a date, but I want to be thorough about it.
