So I had my lap yesterday...and I do not have endometriosis! What the doctor found was a ton of scar tissue (prob from my c-sections). He said it completely covers my left ovary, fallopian tube, attaches to my stomach, and my stomach muscles. He said it pulls my uterus to the left and up--so he said he could see why I was in sooo much pain. It was so bad he couldn't fix it with that surgery--he said it was too dangerous. He has given me 2 choices: I can have major surgery--they'll open me up big and try to repair the damage so that I can attempt to get pregnant with my right side (with no guarantee that it will work). Or I can have a hysterectomy and removal of my left ovary and tube. I have no idea what to do!!!! There's no guarantee that I'll be able to pregnant, and I'll have a timeline I believe before my scar tissue grows back. My husband doesn't want another baby, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't know what to do--any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
