then when the consultant came i told him i do not want him to remove my ovaries at any cost as i want kids. And then he said that he will also check if my tubes are blocked with a dye test...thank god he was listening!!! then after op he came to see me.....i was clonked out cos the just as imbecilic anaesthetist gave me too much morphine....so i was so drowsy and was constantly being sick.

anyway, he told me that i have severe endo and my only option is IVF. now i was half asleep but i could see tha sadness in his face.... why did he say it like that??? i'm so upset. maybe he saw something worse? like what if i do get pregnant but can't sustain a pregnancy? god why is this happening to me??

Is there any hope? Is there anyone with sever endo that has had kids? Did you have miscarriages? I'm 31 so not on the young side. But at least under 35 years which should help. but these are all guess work so i dont know who to belive and not to belive.
Okay, I re-read this thread. And I have a success story to share with you.

My mother had a lap and was told her endo was SOOO bad, she would never have kids. She was also told she had too much scar tissue, so no egg would ever implant or grow. So she just went on thinking she would never have children. Then years later, (she was 32) her af was late. She was 7 weeks pregnant with me. She went into the er a week later for heavy bleeding. The docs were amazed at her. apperently, I dug myself deep next to the scar tissue and caused the bleeding. As her womb grew, the endo and scar tissue stretched and softened.

To make a long story short, she has had 3 pregnancies since giving birth to me. 1 mc, but I have 2 sisters. Her endo is gone. So it is possible... it just might take some time. You might even want a second opinion down the road as that doc doesn't seem very Doctorish. (what doc thinks endo can be seen on u/s?)

Tons of to you hun. Don't give up hope.
Thank you so much for your good news about your mum, there are times like know we all need some encouragement. Im just praying now it will be my final lap.

Hey I am here recovering from lap number 4 for severe endo. FS told us yesteradyt assisted is our only option but we knew that already.

I know of people with all grades of endo who have got pregnant naturally, It will happen for us all I am sure. One way of another. xxx

Hi Hun

Sorry about the endo and the lap, i remember spotting as well however it did ease off. I dont recall bd, but i think if your feeling ok you should be ok. I think they always advise you to listen to your body. How about a call to the department where u had your op and speak to a nurse.

Ive got severe endo as well, have my pre-op appoitnment this afternoon, i dont have any symptoms as well. It is shocking isnt it to hear what u have when u had no symptoms.

It was ok, ive asked for them to test my tubes which they have agreed to. Nothing major, i was mainly with the nurse. With tracking the endo, i unfortnately grow cysts every few months so its quite easy to track but its a catch 22.

I do however get some pain sometimes, i remember getting pms really bad my last periods. Not being able to get up and in loads of pain which is unusual for me. The only other symptom i have is i am lactose intolerant.

Good luck with catching the egg

hi....well i went and saw my fs today as my doc suspects that i have endometriosis.....my fs said that there was no need to do a laparoscopy as ive had a hycosy which showed my tube was clear and my scans didnt show anything up. i said would the scans def if there was spmething up and she said not always but i dont think u need this done....and gave me another 3 mths of clomid!!! i just wanted to cry, just dont feel like she is listening properly at all....

my doc said that the lower back pain from 17 dpo up til af arrives & spotting brown/black from 4 days b4 af is due are strong indicators that i may have endometriosis.....i explained this to my fs and she asked if i ever have painful intercourse, i said yes sometimes it does hurt, she seemed to shrug it off and said well the erosion testing u had done in the summer showed a healthy cervix so dont worry. I feel like she is parming me off with more pills....she said i wll see u in 3 mths time and sent me packing!!

when were u refered to have a lap? what symptoms did u have? we have been ttc for 17 mths now and im so desperate to have baby number 2 and feels like it may never happen! i didnt have this awful bad low pain and spotting when i conceived my daughter 4 & a half years ago so im sure somethings up! ive looked into paying privately but its 3000!! xx
