Hey everyone, so, bit of background info: I have had endo for about 10 years, and went in to get a lap on 6th April (this would be my 3rd to remove endo), I took a severe anaphylactic reaction to the anaesthetic and it couldn't be done, it was awful, I had to be resuscitated and put on a life support machine. I need to get a whole pile of allergy tests before I can be booked in to get the surgery done again (they think I was allergic to a muscle relaxant - mucho weird as I've had around 10 general anaesthetics in my life) and I don't even have a date to go to immunology. Needless to say I would rather never have surgery again, and have started to think that if I get preggers I will not have to get it done (at least for 9 months or so anyway). I found out that I've only really had endo in the pouch of douglas, back of the uterus and utero-sacral ligaments, so none on ovaries, however my surgeon was going to do a 'flush' and dye test thing on my fallopian tubes anyway so see if there were any problems. I've never been pregnant before and I've been married one year but we were going to wait until at least after the op before thinking about trying, we do both want kids. I'm on the OCP so am worried that stopping it will make the endo worse but thats just a risk I'd have to take, and not even discussed this plan with my husband yet, but was wondering if you could tell me your experiences of this, good and bad? If I get preg am hoping that the endo will go subside, is this the case? And did it take long to conceive? Any tips to make it happen? Apart from that I'm 27 years old and have no other medical conditions. Thanks everyone!!
