“IT IS COMMON FOR [ENDOMETRIOSIS] TO BE MISSED BY GENERAL GYNAECOLOGY AT SURGERY, OR FOR THE DISEASE TO BE INTENTIONALLY LEFT WHEN THE SURGEON DOES NOT HAVE THE SKILLS OR TRAINING,
OR WHEN THEY BELIEVE THEY CAN ‘CLEAN UP’ ENDO WITH MEDICATION (MEDICATION/HORMONAL TREATMENTS MAY SEEK TO ALLEVIATE SYMPTOMS BUT DO NOT STOP THE PROGRESSION OF THE DISEASE) ”
