I have a long history of Endometriosis and multiple surgeries. In 2014 I underwent a hysterectomy and removal of my left ovary due to a chocolate cyst. At the same time my vaginal cuff was rebuilt and endometriosis was removed from that area. The remaining lesions were cauterized. In 2015 I had a second surgery due to recto vaginal endometriosis and all areas were cauterized. Then in December 2020 I had a large right ovarian cyst (6.5 cm) removed and more areas of endometriosis were cauterized throughout the pelvis (including the bladder flap and left pelvic area). I have been working with women’s health in Jacksonville and Dr. Destephano. I have started pelvic PT, taking a Valium suppository nightly for pain and have a Botox injection procedure scheduled in early January. Since I am a school counselor, I am hoping the injections can get me through until June and then I can schedule the first week of summer break.
In the end, it looks like I am looking at another surgery (recent MRI showed multiple lesions, including on the vaginal cuff again). I have a video appointment scheduled with Dr. Wasson in Arizona, as I have done extensive research and she seems to be highly specialized with endometriosis excision. Does anyone have previous experience with either Dr. Wasson or Dr. Destephano and endometriosis excision? I am also looking at recovery time, etc. Dr. Destephano also mentioned Pelvic Peritonectomy. Any information/experiences would be greatly appreciated! I am more then willing to travel to Arizona for Dr. Wasson.
