2nd Laporoscopy

2nd Laporoscopy

I had a laparoscopy in december 2016 to remove my endo, however my sypmyoms have never improved. I have had various other treatments and nothing has worked. I am now due to go back in for another laparoscopy, but im curious if anyone in a similar situation who had another laparoscopy and if the endo had grown back?

I had excision.But endo is a kinda benign cancer.So I would expect a return thats why they say treatment can help but no cure.

Advice Please?

Advice Please?

Hiya,

Could you please give me your honest advice/thoughts? Currently at the end of my tether and don't know who else to turn to.

Since I was 14 (now almost 26) I have seen various different doctors and a gynaecologist being told all sorts of different things but all of them have said they suspect I have endometriosis. With my current doctor she is the best one I have seen to date and is really clued up on the disease and says she is 100% sure I have it and all my symptoms match, there's nothing… read more

Laparoscopy Or Not?

Laparoscopy Or Not?

So my doctor believe I have endo but doesn't want to do the laporoscopy to confirm. Everything I have read says that's the only way to be 100% sure. Should I push the issue when I see her in February?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I suggest it. It also detects the stage which is important when discussing treatment options. I had mine in August, it's super simple and I was back at… read more

How Were You Examined To Find Out Whether Or Not You Have Endo ?

How Were You Examined To Find Out Whether Or Not You Have Endo ?

I was just wondering how everyone was examined to see whether or not you have endo?

Because How can you have a Pap smear or vaginal exam if it's so unbearably painful for you ? I went to a gyno and they kept saying the only way to tell was through that kind of exam . Is that true ? Is there a way that they can do an ultrasound to find the lesions ? Can they put you to sleep during your vaginal exam ? Because it caused me so much pain to the point of… read more

A blood test is being developed outside that US, that will hopefully bring a less invasive option to testing for Endo
Fingers crossed it comes soon-… read more

Has Anyone Had A Laproscpoy Without Anything Found?

Has Anyone Had A Laproscpoy Without Anything Found?

My doctor has decided that to hopefully control my pain for awhile I’m getting another laparoscopy. I’m nervous because since it’s so close to my last one they won’t find anything, even though my pain has been worse than ever and I’ve been bleeding for a month and a half and now I’m having problems with my bowels. Has anyone had a laparoscopy without finding anything or anything similar happen?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I understand this. For my 1st laparoscopy, it felt like the surgeons didn't find nearly enough scar tissue for all my pain. My original OB/GYN just… read more

Should I Push For A Laproscopy?

Should I Push For A Laproscopy?

I'm seeing my second obgyn after a strong of bad doctors, she told me my history sounds like endometriosis and there's a cyst with debris on my ultrasound results. She's put me on visanne and now I'm just adjusting to the hormones, I don't get my period anymore which helps a lot. I go for a follow up ultrasound in a month, she says if the cyst disappears because of the visanne she's 100% confident it's Endo even without the surgery to confirm.

I've been on a mission to determine… read more
