Endometriosis UK

How long should I wait before I report symptoms to the doctors for a second time?

I had an laporectomy last December, and for the last 4 months I have been experiencing the old discomfort which turned out to be large cysts last time. Before my last op I had had an laporoscopy 6 months earlier, then in the 6 months following I grew 2 cysts the size of grapefruits.

I don't know if I am being over-sensitive this time, or should I start reporting the problem now so that I can get my name on a list?

Any advice would be really helpful!

Hi JoanneH

I think you must report the problem to your doctor and get on the list if there is any need for another laparoscopy...i know its horrible..

Take care x


Hi hunny i would contact your doctor ,i also experience pain after a lap ,had one in april last yr ,pain can back soon after and had to have another in the august .Ended up loosing a ovary .Consultant tried to reasure me that it couldnt come back so soon considering i was on zoladex !! How wrong was he

Ended up having a hysterectomy in the june ,tc hunny


Don't wait for things to get worse. Contact your consultant asap. Endo can come back at anytime, there's no set time. And never be afraid to say whats going on, as you have a diagnosed problem and you deserve to have it looked at again. Good luck hun xxx


If you having pain get down the docs :) I have had 4 ops waiting for no 5. I don't get much reduced pain inbetween it comes back so fast. It can take them a long time to do anything about it so better to get on the waiting list before it becomes that bad. I hope it gets better for you. x
