Had 1st Lap on Wednesday, was only told very briefly that I have Endo on both ovaries and to see consultant in 5 weeks. Any others with this condition? What is your pain like as I am not convinced. The main of my pain is in my constant lower back and not too much in the abdomen (but painful, erratic and sometimes heavy periods, and or spotting.) Was told there was nothing that would be causing my lower back pain. Am waiting on an Orthopeadic consultation, but my pain is identical to the period pain I have always suffered with in my back.
Also what might the options be for Endo on Ovaries.
Thank you xxx
Did they just diagnose you or did they do anything to remove the endo on the ovaries?
Did they mention adhesions from those ovarian lesions?
If they cleaned up the ovaries did they also check your fallopian tubes were still clear too?
Some questions there you might want to ask at the follow up appointment if you weren't told right away.
The great news is that there is endo and it does appear to be very local to the ovaries and not obviously attached to any other organs yet let alone invading them.
however that still leaves unanswered questions about the pain levels.
If they tackled the endo they found, it will be interesting to see if during your next period the back pains are less or still the same and how long the pain lasts.
it's early days yet, but at least you are getting somewhere.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thank you for replying Impatient, it was just a diagnositic lap and it was the anaesthetist who quickly came and told me briefly that they had found Endo on both Ovaries. I have to admit I feared from the amount of pain that I was riddled with Endo like so many poor ladies on here, so am very grateful it's such a small area.
As for the back pain, it has been constant, every day now for 5 months, I have had a couple of periods and it did get worse at those times. It's just a constant nagging, dragging, dull ache, like period pain and labour pain, and I was convinced it was Endo in Pouch of Douglas or Uterosacral Ligaments. Obviously relieved that wasn't the case, but it's hard when there aren't any answers yet for the back pain ( I have morphine for it), and also wondering what lies ahead with regards to the ovaries.
Thank you for your kind wishes, I will bare in mind your suggestions for questions needing to be asked when I see Cons. again. Hope you yourself are not too bad today. xx
