Removal of vagina?

Originally Posted by AnnZoe
Hi there, I have recurring vaginal adenosis with no DES exposure and vaginal endo, so removal of the vagina is something I have disussed with my doctor. The vagina usually is not the only thing removed, often the bladder goes too. Reconstruction is possible, they use part of your intestines (I am sure I remember that correctly, but I was FREAKING during this consult). I was told the reconstructed vagina would work just like the old one, but not a lot of doctors cared to do the surgery. I agree that removing the vagina for endo seems extreme, it can be lasered off the vaginal surface at least! I have problems with sex, but removing my vagina IMHO is not going to fix that, so I suck up the pain. Get at least two more opinions, and I will keep you in my prayers.
Have either of you had the endo cut out (excised)?

My was never cut, it was LEEPED and Lasered. I think that is due to vaginal endo tends to be quite deep, and any cutting to excise would require reconstruction, but I could be wrong. I just know with me cutting was never mentioned as an option. That being said, it was cut out of the abdomen during my hyster, but there wasn't a lot there.
