I would go for the lap first, but only with a top endo specialist. If you search for the endometriosis Australia Facebook page, the women there will be able to suggest some great specialists.
I'm looking at starting IVF next year as I've got endo and adeno, but we are waiting a year to see if we can fall pregnant naturally first.
I looked on the endometriosis Australia Facebook page but couldn't see any recommendations for surgeons? I've emailed them so hopefully they'll get back to me. I'm booked in with Dr Vincent Lamaro in December (I'm going to have a great Xmas!) but who knows if he's good or not?! I saw two surgeons and went for him because he seemed to reassure me more - the other one just made me panic but then maybe he was just more honest?!
I sent you a PM with some of the names I found.
I just checked the FB page and it's actually called 'endometriosis Australia discussion group'. There's probably a NSW endo page as well. I'm in Melb, so unfortunately I don't know much about the docs in Sydney.
I know this is an old thread but for people who have gone through a laparoscopy how painful/long is the recovery? Thanks in advance
