The Third Op Was Done 8 Months Ago.I Am Suffering Horribly With Pains On My Left Side.I Was Due To Come On 2 Weeks Ago.The Pain Is Getting Worse!! I Am Not Prepared To Go For Anotrher Op As I Am Sure Each Time I Go For An Op It Reduces My Chances Of Having Kids.I Am Worried That I Might Be Infertile Already.I Am Only 20 Now Want To HAve Kids Someday.
