Pain Home > What You Can Expect Without a Laparoscopy for Endometriosis

Even if a laparoscopy for endometriosis is recommended by your doctor, it is always your choice whether to have this procedure. However, it is important to understand the possible results of that decision.
No one can predict exactly what will happen in your body. Even if you have the surgery, your problems might come back. They might also go away or get worse. You and your doctor will have to talk about what is best. You need to think about your health, your life right now, and whether you want to have children in the future.
You have the final say about laparoscopic surgery, but you should always talk with your doctor. He or she can answer questions and help you understand what is going on and what is best for you.
