    Default Endometriosis

    Hi everyone, so I have endometriosis and have been lucky enough to have 3 surgeries because of it! My past surgery was a year an half ago and last few months i have been having pain during my period, as in sharp stabbing pains so i went back to my gp and she is referring me back to my fertility specialist, and looks like more surgery :-(
    We have been ttc for 5 years and its very depressing, i am just wondering if there are any other endo "warriors" that have been through a few surgeries and have successfully fallen pregnant? I am wondering if i want to go through the surgery again as im worried if i am making it worse??
    Hope there is others out there that can help!
    :-)

    Hi muzzy
    I'm in a very similar boat to you. Been TTC 4 years, have had 2 laps and having my 3rd in a few months (on public hospital waiting list). After my last lap I got my BFP 6 weeks later, unfortunately it ended in miscarriage though, but I do believe it was the lap that helped me conceive. I have done 2 rounds of ivf this year with no success so hoping removing the endo gives me a bfp again. Good luck! I hope some more people can give you some positive stories

    Are you having your surgery done by an endo specialist? I've got a 3yo dd and it took us 2yrs to fall pregnant naturally (12 mths after a lap). I've got stage 4 endo & now adenomyosis but my tubes are clear

    A fertility specialist isn't always an endo specialist. If you haven't joined already, there's a great Aus endo discussion group on FB that's worth joining. They can give recommendations for the best specialists in every state

    Hi Muzzy,
    I am not the success story you are looking for but I am happy to share my experience with you. I am just home from hospital after having my endometriosis resected on Saturday (for the second time).
    Unfortunately my original gyno, who did the first surgery 2 years ago was not an expert in endo and did not remove it all properly. I then went through 5 failed rounds of ivf which were all probably doomed due to the endo.
    Finally after seeking a second opinion for ivf, I found a really good endo surgeon whom I think has done a great job this time. I don't hold much hope for my fertility because of my age but I do have hope that I will be finally able to live pain free for the first time in 25 years.
    And it's true, not all fertility specialists have the same surgical skills or knowledge in the endo field. You need to find someone who really specialises in endo.
    If you are in NSW you may like to see my surgeon, if you want to pm me I can give you his name.
    Best of luck.

    Resect means to cut out. As opposed to burning it out which is not the most effective.
    Good luck with finding the right surgeon in Vic.
