I think you need a second opinion from another doctor, which you are intitled to!. Is this doctor a gynae specialist?. Your right in thinking that endo doesn't show up on scans, you can only establish this through investigation ie, Laporoscopy!.

Sometimes endo shows on MRI scans, I guess not every radiologist can pick it up, but some are specialist in that area.


May be a silly question but If he is cutting 3 inches deep under your scar will he get down to your internal cavity and be in a position to look inside anyway?


well you would think so wouldnt you ? he said " I will take that away send it off for testing and see how you feel if dont help we will start a treatment to stop your periods ? I am due for a scan in a few weeks of my pelvic floor plus all my right side to see if their is any gallstones or cysts ect ect
