After 2 years of pain I finally found a doctor who believed me when I said I had pain and the doctor gave me a laporascopy 3 weeks ago. He dx me with endo and I have a laporatomy scheduled in a week and half (he couldn't get the endo because the ovary is attached to the intestines and ureter) for removal of endo and a possible oopherectomy and partial hystorectomy. I am simply afraid having everything happen so fast after 2 years of slow building pain. I feel that maybe he is a little knife happy, but I have heard that nothing else seems to work (hormones, b/c,). I am also a little scared of the actual laporatomy and recovery. Has anyone else had this surgery? Had relief or worse?
