I got diagnosed with stage 4 endo about 5 years ago. Ended up having an 8 hr lap and a bit of bowel removed. It's still in my womb but tubes were then apparently clear. Quite a lot of scar tissue too. Been managing the pain and the condition with the merina coil and continuous pill.
Last MRI said is has returned esp in my bowel again. The dr (never met before and had not had time to read my history) who delivered this news gave me 3 options. Hysterectomy. Another Lap. Or do nothing.
Being a ticking time bomb I am going to try and have baby now (36), not the best time but I am running out of time. The Dr would not advise which option (2 or 3) would assist the most, can't give that advise, apparently. I am off to see my gp to ask his view next week.
Anyone had a similar situation? Would a lap be worth putting off trying for 6 months or so?
Hope you are all feeling ok and managing the pain x
