Does Anyone Know If It’s “okay” To Ask For A Second Laparoscopy?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Im tired of tip toeing around doctors while I re-explain ALL my symptoms just for them to suggest physical therapy or meditation and then refuse to actually put endo in my diagnoses list but then put “endometriosis symptoms present” in my chart notes.

Definitely okay to ask for a second one! It sucks that we have to constantly advocate for ourselves against people who are meant to be on our side but it's of course okay to not only ask, but insist. wishing you the best of luck

I'm so sorry. This sounds very dismissive. Are you seeing an Endo specialist?
