Hi

Thanks for the article Foxy.....but like Jo, I've had several ops which have involved excision....the first was around 8-10 years ago (both my 3rd and 4th laps) so it's not that new.

Excision is far more skilled as it uses microscopic tools to literally cut away the endo, especially good for more deep rooted endo.....many consultants don't have the skills or expertise to perform this so perhaps it's just becoming more widely used as more consultants get experience.

Take care

Thanks girls

i have read about it in the past as well, just thought I would share the article as not everyone may know about it.  Guess a lot of it depends on where you live as well - unfortunately it's not something which has been available where I am, as you say that's probably down to the expertise required of the surgeon.

hi girls,  :)

i had this type of treatment in Bristol, a year ago and anyone who knows me knows that unfortunately it seems to be returning.

i have found as well that whilst it was the only option for me as my endo was so severe, i wasn't up and about quite as quickly as the lady in the article.

i'm due to find out next week if ill need it again, hopefully fingers crossed i won't.  ^pray^ i do think though that in some ways it is better as at least it cuts away the infected tissue allowing it to regenerate from scratch. but with endo there are no certainties so i guess it just depends in each case.

thanks to foxy for posting this as hopefully it will encourage a better awareness for treating endo regardless of where you live.

love to all

Hi ladies

I have also had this excision to my endometriosis (severe endo) in my 2nd lap in March.  It definately does boil down to the expertise of the doctors.  My doctor told me that there are only a handful of doctors around his area who can do this op.  It has been 3 months and still have not achieved my BFP but am seeing a fertility specialist on the 9th of June to see what he says and to maybe try IVF.
