linesse, yes, I had a laproscopy (sp?) and my doc lasred off some adhesions. thank you!JenS, Thanks, I am still sorting through the info, but I believe I have had endo since my teens which would make it tens years for me since I have been going to the doctor about all of this. I just can't begin to understand why it takes so long to diagnose as this monster as it rips through your body. I am going to have a new soap box, can you tell?
