Bowl adhesions

I have suspected that I have had endometrosis since I was 16. I am now 29. I have been having severe right lower quadrant pain. My OBGYN finally decided it was time for a laparoscopic procedure. They removed a cyst and endometrial tissue on the left side. She told me they were unable to do anything about the right, due to abdominal and bowel adhesions. My appendix also had adhesions. She is referring me to a general surgeon. Does anyone have experience with this?

  1. Hi there . So sorry to hear of what you are dealing with but definitely happy to hear you have been able to find some answers finally. I had surgery a few months ago where they removed some endo around my bowels. I would suggest looking into an endometriosis specialist. And go from there. They may be better able to assist you with the locations of your endo. Are you a part of Nancy's Nook? It is a Facebook group and she lists names of specialists that you can look up in your specific location or surrounding areas. I do hope you are able to get more answers and find some relief. Keep us posted on everything if you can <3 -Kimberli (Team Member)
