Surgery

I recently began seeing an re after having 3 miscarriages in the past year. He did a ton of tests on my husband and me and the only thing he found was scar tissue in my uterus. I am scheduled for an hsg to remove it in a few weeks. Here's where I need your advice... A few years ago I had laparoscopic surgery to remove an ovarian cyst and my dr found some endometriosis. I haven't had any symptoms of endo but I've always been curious if it has come back and contributed to my mcs. Should I ask my dr to check for it since I'm going under anesthesia anyway? In my mind the only con is a slightly longer recovery. Anyone been in a similar situation?

I would definitely mention it.  I believe endometriosis can cause problems ttc and pg, but I'm not 100% sure.  Maybe call your dr before your surgery so they are aware.  I'm not sure they would be able to do anything about it if they find out day of about it.  Good luck.  I hope the removal of the scar issue helps!

I think you should have them check!! I even if it hasn't come back, at least you will have piece of mind knowing.

I would definitely have them check. It can't hurt anything. I know a lot of women who had better luck after dealing with their endo.

Hey there! YES ENDO can grow back! I know this because my Friend has had to have the surgery a few times:(  I have been in for the Surgery once and it was only on my Uterur glands so nothing to do with my Reproductive ( thank god I have enough issues there.) But I would for sure ask him to look while he is there get all that cleaned out if its there so you can have a real go at it:) Also I would like to say that I am very sorry for you loss :( I know the feeling for recurrent miscarriages I have had 4 early loss and one late loss with my Kloie Lynn @ 19 weeks. Hang in there

I think you should check with your doctor as well! I think a doctor would be the best person to get medical advice from to be sure.  It's great that you're asking others for advice too though.  I came across this article and it might be interesting to read about this site that you can also ask advice from : http://onforb.es/116FDBU. Best wishes and take care!!  Hope everything will be better for you soon!
