Hi - This is my first question on here. I have been suffering with endometriosis type symptoms for a long time (years) and have had one set of prostap injections which helped. I was discharged yesterday from hospital after a five day stay and they have found a 9cm x 7cm x 5cm endometrioma cyst on my left ovary, which was going to be removed in the hospital in an emergency surgery. They later changed their mind and I got discharged with pain relief, started a new set of prostap injections and a follow up appointment in 6 weeks. I have read on here about lots of people having a laproscopy to have the endometriosis and cysts taken away but I have never been offered this. The thinking is that I might have PCOS aswell - ive been told that I clinically look like someone with PCOS, despite having a normal hormone profile.
The main question - is it worth having a laporotomy and has it helped with the pain and symptoms. I feel like im being fobbed off in a way. It would make complete sence to me to remove a cyst that large, which is causing me so much pain, has anyone else been advised against surgery (or had the decision postponed?) and what was the reasoning behind this?
Thankyou for any responses in advance!!
