Finally a new surgical approach: remove the endometriosis! Dr Trehan believes that endometriosis “…is a generalized disease of the pelvic peritoneum and a radical approach like total pelvic peritoneal excision is the answer”.
If my experience is anything to go by, I wholly agree with his hypothesis – I have found medicines to help me cope with symptoms but really do nothing to actually help my condition. I have had 3 surgeries so far and am in the process of contemplating a fourth. Although I do not want to have children, I don’t want to lose my feminine organs if I don’t have to.
I’m reading this site and wondering how no one has thought of this before! I’m reading this and thinking that I have nothing to lose by having another “plain” endometriosis treatment surgery so that the techniques used by Dr Trehan can be used on more women and, hopefully, by the time I need another further surgery (which will be number 5!) the techniques will have trickled down to the people I go to!
