Saw consultant yesterday and after jumping up and down in front of GP for the last two years, it was a great feeling for someone to finally take me seriously! However it was a great shock to hear he wanted to do a laparoscopy straight away. I thought they would just put me on some tablets or something.
Can I ask will my first lap just be to investigate or if they find anything will they remove anything? The impression I got was he was just going to see what was going on and take some pictures.
I am 24 and he explained that because I am so young he wants to push the process on as he tends to find younger patients are usually much worse. He also explained about fertility and that if they do find anything I may need help or reconsider my plans - depends on severity. I am getting married to my fiance of 8 years in 2014 and we really want children just not so soon!
I really am scared and just want to talk to someone. There are so many confusing messages and articles.
Thanks in advance.
