I've had 2 laparoscopies. A diagnostic laparoscopy is the only way to know for sure if a girl or woman has endometriosis. To treat the disease, it must excised. Burning, scraping, cauterizing, fulgurating does not treat endometriosis.
Chronic Pain patients tend to minimize their pain. pain *i don't really care about seeming normal. i just don't want my family to know how bad it is, because there is nothing they can do. no reason to make them feel bad too.
