Pain Home > Organ Injury With a Laparoscopy for Endometriosis

During any abdominal surgery, it is possible that damage to your organs can occur. Organs that may be damaged include the:
 
  • Intestines
  • Bladder
  • Ureters
  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Uterus.
     
Because of the nature of laparoscopy for endometriosis, these injuries are rare. If any injury does occur, the treatment options will vary, depending on the damage. In most cases, these injuries are found right away and can be repaired and healed without a problem. If they do not heal, another surgery may be needed. Sometimes an injury to an organ may not appear at the time of the operation, but will show up later. This may also require another surgery to fix the problem.
