Surgeries for Diaphragmatic Endometriosis

Text that reads Laparoscopic management of diaphragmatic endometriosis by three different approaches

A video released on April 19, 2016, discusses three surgical options for removing diaphragmatic Endometriosis.   As you may know, I have Endometriosis on my diaphragm (and I’m not talking about the birth control), as do several other EndoWarriors that I know.  What does that mean?  Read all about Endo and the lungs or diaphragmatic Endo.  If you’d like to know what Endometriosis looks like inside some patients, fast forward to the 4:01 mark of the video…

This video was particularly interesting to me because I may, one day, require the thoracoscopic surgery to remove the lesions/implants from my diaphragm.  My surgeon let me know that he wasn’t able to get it all in 2014 because you simply cannot see all of the diaphragm via laparoscopic surgery.  This video confirms it.

Warning : the video is graphic and is not safe for work.

I’m grateful to Gary for helping me access this video, and for his interest in helping others.  Thanks, Gary. ❤

  1. What’s your symptoms like for the lung endo, Lisa? Have you had chest pain or shoulder pain during your cycle? I’m rather curios. Thanks for raising an awareness for this endo.
