Has anyone had a surgery where they cauterize or burn the entire surface of the ovaries? I have growths on my ovaries from endometriosis and my doctor wants to go in and burn all the endo they see and both of my ovaries so nothing more can grow. She also said this would help with my PCOS. I can’t tolerate any of the endo meds so I know I’ll be having surgery every 1-3 years but wondered if this was all that different from excision because that’s the only thing I ever hear about. I believe they cauterize the area after anyways so this seems like a good idea but had never heard of it before. I trust my doctor but there’s so much contradictory information and misinformation.
