What Is Endometriosis?
So what is this endometriosis that is being spoken of right? We know how to treat it, but what is it exactly? Well, endometriosis is a disorder (often painful) where tissue that is similar to the endometrium (tissue that lines the inside of the uterus) grows outside of the uterus.
This disorder usually affects the fallopian tubes, ovaries and tissues that line your pelvis. The mock endometrial tissue acts the same as the real endometrial tissue would.
The problem happens when the mock tissue has no way of exiting the body so it becomes trapped. It can involve the ovaries since the mock tissue has no way out, causing endometriosis (cyst) to grow on the ovaries. It then can cause irritation to surrounding tissues, pain, and the development of scar and fibrous tissue, which can lead to organs and pelvic tissue sticking together creating a very excruciating experience.
So Can This Procedure Really Save Your Life?
In hindsight, yes this procedure can possibly save your life. How? Because it can determine if there is an issue before it becomes worse. Of course, there are some risk factors that you will have to talk to your doctor about when the time comes as with any procedure but regardless of that, it can be very helpful.
Though the procedure is most commonly used to detect endometriosis or other issues found in women, it can be used for abdomen problems as well. Regardless of what you may need it for, a laparoscopy can be the one thing that finally helps you get the answers you’ve been searching for.
