How do I prepare for endometriosis surgery?
As with any surgery, you will be asked to not eat or drink at least 8 hours before the procedure.
Endometriosis is treatable?
Endometriosis can’t be cured but is highly treatable. Medication and surgery can help relieve the pain and get pregnant. As last resort, the patient can opt to get a hysterectomy.
What can I expect during recovery?
After surgery, you might experience soreness in the abdomen, mild vaginal bleeding and you should avoid lifting, sexual intercourse, and intense exercise. Most patients can return to their normal activities after 2 or 3 weeks.
Can I get pregnant after the surgery?
Surgery will not guarantee an improvement in fertility. Is recommended to start fertility treatments if pregnancy doesn’t happen after 6 or 12 months of surgery.
