I’m new to Healthunlocked so hoping you can offer some support and info.
Been diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis since last September and have had surgery in December and again in March. Unfortunately I only found out recently that they were not able to remove all of the endometriosis in my last surgery as my ovary is attached to both my uterus and bowel, which apparently involves a whole other surgery team. Which also seems to be getting worse at a considerable rate.
My main goal is to try and conceive rather than have more surgery, which was agreed by my consultant, as this will only affect my fertility for a longer period of time. Supposedly the first three months after my surgery were my ‘best chances’ and they have now said that to give it another three months and then go for IVF (though I do not get any IVF funding on the NHS in my area). We have been trying to conceive since December 2016 with no success.
Has anyone got any IVF success story’s with stage IV endo?
Would love to have some positive news as it’s all been a bit depressing recently.
