I have taken the plunge and decided to have private treatment as I can't wait for the NHS any longer. I have a consultation Friday with my chosen consultant, who has come highly recommended so I am quite excited! I have also been given a potential provisional date of May 5th for surgery.
My question is, what actually happens? I have an endometrioma and disease has been felt on internal examinations, so I have been diagnosed with endo despite not having had a diagnostic lap, so I am hoping that during this lap I will have the blasted endometrioma removed, and any disease found excised? Is that typical? If it is a case of it being purely diagnostic, having a root around, sewing me up and then scheduling another surgery for treatment, then I would rethink going private. I understand that stuff like bowel and bladder problems can be complex and probably won't be done on the first one, but if anyone can inform me that would be great. My endometrioma causes me a huge amount of pain and discomfort so I just want it out, even if that means my ovary going with it - I am past caring!!
Thanks in advance
