Likely heading for another Laparoscopy


I went and saw a consultant today about the pain and cramps that have returned since my last laparoscopy. My consultant has suggested I go for another laparoscopy and so I will be put back on a waiting list. If we're still unsuccessful when TTC, then it will be IVF. The good news was that my endo doesn't seem to be 'deep infiltrating' and so that was a relief. I am also relieved that I wasn't told to try for a bit longer before we consider another laparoscopy or that I wasn't severe enough for another laparoscopy.

Hi Sarah can I ask what symptoms you have been getting as I have suspected Endometriosis and in a lot of pain and just looking for advice from people who are going through it. Thanks

Hi, well I had a laparoscopy literally 2 weeks ago so I'm hoping for no more symptoms! But my previous symptoms were: a moderate-severe pain in my stomach, particualry on my right hand side, and the pain normally flared up around my time of the month or ovulation. However, it could have flared up at any time as well.

My advice is go to your GP, try and get a referral to gynaecologist to try and see if you can get it confirmed. Hope this helps, best of luck! x
