    Anyway, happy to chat if you want to regarding the lap surgery and what to expect.
    Hi scubaGal,
    I'm really new to this. How many posts do you need until you can set up a PM account?
    Thanks

I was adamant I would have the surgery as even with my good AMH the endometriona was making me a poor responder to IVF. My antral count was 17 and 11 but once stimming the most eggs I got was 3 mature. I would go for the surgery, yes it might lower your AMH but you probably won't respond at the moment with the endometrioma there. Maybe compromise and agree to do 1 ivf cycle to see how you respond, and if you are a poor responder then go for the surgery. Fingers crossed 1 round gets your lucky embryo and you wouldn't need the surgery.
    Thanks just*ace, I'm envious of your AMH!

    Why was your surgeon hesitant?

    I am now thinking that I might just do one round and then go for the laparoscopy. I have everything crossed that I will get pregnant with this round of IVF and won't need the surgery 🍀

    The surgeon said that AMH isn't everything, my number might seem good but this was 3rd surgery that involved my ovaries and it's a lot of trauma for them.
    That's a good plan, and I have everything crossed for you too

    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 like hearing people say that AMH isn't everything! Good luck just*ace, I hope you get preggers in your next cycle x

    Hi bluehawaii,
    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?!

    Good luck.
    I will definitely look into this doctor, thanks so much for the recommendation. I just PM you also. Thanks again

    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
