So, after 11 months of trying and no success, I underwent a laparoscopic surgery last Friday to take a look. I have never had any signs/symptoms of endo other than some really bad cramps, but my mother has it so my RE thought it would be important to rule it out. As it turns out, I have stage III endo. They removed what they could, and we meet again in two weeks to discuss "more aggressive" steps. I'm just wondering who else out there is dealing with this and any advice they might have?
