Hi everyone! I recently had an appointment with my surgeon about my last surgery (this is my 2nd surgery, was diagnosed with endo last year). It was a really weird experience because in hospital after my surgery, she made a big deal about all of the uterus adhesions she found, how serious and long the surgery was as well as the large number of biopsies she took. However, at my appointment she was quite rude and seemed to dismiss my pain and everything previously she said about my surgery. She said there actually was no endo, and actually my adhesions were on my ovaries? It was also really weird because she only send 3 of my biopsies to pathology to be studied for endo, after all the work she said that she did excising endo. I have photos of my laparoscopy, and she says that I have which ‘red and brown staining’ (without any explanation of what that it’s). She basically said to me that if I ever came back again with pain she would not treat me for endo because it will never grow back and I’m ‘cured’ and instead we would look into the chronic pain model. While I do respect the chronic pain model, I’m a bit confused because endo can grow back.
Has anyone else had a similar experience where doctors change the details of your surgery? I feel really confused and unsupported. It’s just so weird because I had a previous surgery with her before, and it was a much better experience. Hopefully one day I can find a surgeon that works for me.
