I had a laparoscopy in May this year and was found to have severe endometriosis (most of the lesions were on my diaphragm, but had a bit on one ovary and bladder/bowel).
I've been on the OC pill continously since the operation, but when I changed pills (the first one gave me horrid side effects), I came off the pill for a week (to ""clear out the system"" according to my GP!) and depressingly had the same painful endo symptoms (pain under my diaphragm and referred right shoulder pain).
I've seen my consultant and he is recommending another laparoscopy to "have another look around". From everyone's experiences is it worth going through the operation again if it failed the first time? When I'm on the pill I'm 100% fine and in no pain, and the consultant said that I'd probably still be on the pill continuously if they do another operation... In my view then, is there any point in being operated on again if only to get back to this point?
Has anyone else had a laparoscopy but then needed another one as either the endo came back, or they didn't get everything removed in the first op?
