If you are in this much pain, we should do an exploratory surgery and — at the very least — take a look in your abdomen.” I agreed.

Do you know if there are other ways to diagnose endometriosis? (Short of full OR procedures?)

A lot of endometriosis symptoms look like they could plausibly be caused by a whole bunch of different things. (I go round and round with my doctors about my “possibly endometriosis, possibly several other things.”) And while my symptoms are definitely annoying, I never have the kind of pain that makes doctors think, “Oh. We need an exploratory surgery.”

Any ideas?
