Hello all,I just had laparoscopic surgery last Wednesday for a cyst on my left ovary. During surgery they found endometriosis as well,the past two days I have had severe back pain and a little cramping.Are those common side affects,or should I contact my doctor? Also any comments on endometriosis and fertility? I go for my follow up Friday,so I have a lot of unanswered questions! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Depending on the extent of endometriosis, the surgery can be extensive and hence some inflammation is expected causing the pain. However if the pain is persistent then you should consult your Doctor. If all of the endometriosis has been removed then the chances of getting pregnant are good. Follow up therapy with hormones may be necessary sometimes. It is advisable to try for a pregnancy soon after treatment of endometriosis. Discuss with your Doctor. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
