It sometimes takes me a while to sort things out in my head before I can do up-dates on dd's situation and I am sorry not to have up-dated before this, because it is actually GOOD news, I am happy to say, though it means more surgery
Firstly, one of the tumours has actually shrunk, by a whole centimetre!!! Secondly the pain dd is getting, and the severe constipation IS almost certainly being caused by the tumour and endometriosis on the bowel (tumour and endometriosis are hard to distinguish from each other). The plan is to do a laparoscopy up in RM Chelsea on 9th November. Dd's surgeon wants to work with an expert in endometriosis at the op and they plan to take loads of pics and several biopsies. If it looks good for removing part of the tumour/endometriosis then a further surgery will be planned. Whilst undergoing surgery (minor or otherwise) is not ideal, the thought of her being out of pain outweighs that. It's a bit of a bummer having to wait so long and dd still being in pain but it's hopefully worth it to have two experts on the case. Her pain relief is helping and the constipation is under control with meds as well.
Dd is feeling much more positive, though not looking forward to yet more holes in her abdomen! It already looks like a patchwork quilt!!!
Best wishes to all,
