Post-Op Diagnosis of Endo, Biopsy is Clean

Hi All,

Has anyone else had it happen that the doctor does a laparoscopic procedure to check for endometriosis and post-op states that you have endo, in my case Stage 2, only to come back after biopsy to find that there is no endometriosis? She said the biopsy came back negative and though I had some dark patches they are just tissue and completely benign.

It is good news as long as the pain was caused by the uterine polyps or ovarian cyst she removed, but I am concerned there could be something else happening. I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and the outcome of the surgery and pain resolution.

Thanks for any feedback you may have!

Laura

I had an endometrial resection and roller ball ablation. The entire lining of my uterus was removed, and then cauterized. This prevents regrowth of the lining, and thus the polyps and fibroid. Look at all of the options. This had virtually no recovery time, and I did not have any periods afterwards. It was extremely successful.

Ask if there are other tests or scans that can be given to make sure.
Other than that, count your blessings!
I would also make sure that they gave you frequent and regular check ups.

Congratulations!
