I'm new to this endo business. I tried convincing my doc for 2 yrs that something was wrong with me. Three months ago I had a very large sized endometrioma cyst removed, along with my right ovary and falipion tube via lapascopitic. After the surgery, the surgeon was stand offish and didn't tell me anything of value. He did tell me the cyst was bigger than expected and that I had a lot of scar tissue. I asked him if he removed any scar tissue and he said no. I was shocked and very uncomfortable. I wish I would have stood up for myself better. He didn't even tell me if he found additional endometriosis. He didn't offer up much info - just asked me if i had any questions. I didn't know what questions TO ask. Does anyone have a theory as to why he wouldn't have removed any scar tissue for me? Pre op I told him to take anything out that needed to go (I know realize that was foolish of me). Now I'm experiencing pain again and not looking forward to another surgery. Any advice would be helpful - I'm trying to become a better advocate for myself. Oh, also, I had to play phone tag with the doc to get the results of my biopsy! They didn't call me when the results were in...is this normal? (I'm cancer free - hell yes)!!
