Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   hi
User :   hello,
I was diagnosed with endometriousis by laproscopic surgery. the endo is going from my uterus to mt abdominal wall & bladder. One doctor told me you definately need a partial hystorecomy (just my uterus). Then another doctor told me to just try endometrial ablation. I don't understand, how is the endometrial ablation going to get rid of all the endometriousis? Thanks for any suggestions or info!
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   surgical removal will give u much better results
Doctor :   than going for ablation
User :   that makes more sense
Doctor :   endometrial ablation may or may not give u good results
User :   I understand I am young 30. and thay do not want to do a full. but a partial is ok
Doctor :   if ur not willing to undergo surgery
Doctor :   u can undergo ablation
Doctor :   yes partial would be ok
Doctor :   nothing to get worried
Doctor :   doctors will take care to see only small amount of it is removed
Doctor :   and u will not be affected
User :   thank u
Doctor :   endometrial ablation is done
Doctor :   Childbearing is completed
Doctor :   You prefer not to have a hysterectomy to control bleeding
Doctor :   Younger women are less likely than older women to respond to endometrial ablation
Doctor :   After an endometrial ablation, younger women are more likely to continue to have periods and need a repeat procedure
