Couple Options: If you have a hydrosalpinx on the fallopian tube it might be a good idea to remove the fallopian tube(s) affected. It may be worthwhile to do pgd on the embryos to see if they are genetically normal. Despite your age likely many if not most of the embryos are not genetically normal given the situation so that may prevent you from transferring embryos that will not lead to pregnancy.

Depo-Lupron: 11 frozen embryos is an above average number, especially if they're frozen at the blastocyst stage. Depo-lupron treatment before another frozen embryo transfer may improve the chances that embryos implant in women with endometriosis, without needing a laparoscopy. An hsg test will check whether or not your tubes are open - a blocked tube at the end(hydrosalpinx) lowers your chances of success.
