In brief: Hmmm, this can be

A tough one. Painful , heavy menses can be remedied with a trial of birth control pills or other forms of hormonal suppression depending on your medical history, etc.
Might be best to try this before pursuing laparoscopy. Okay to ask your doctor about their opinion on surgery. Answer will depend on your particular situation. Don't be afraid to bring it up and one can also seek a second opinion.

In brief: Please

Please get another opinion.
If you have failed all conservative treatment, then a laparoscopy may be indicated. Write down all of the treatments you have tried, and also let them know if you have failed oral contraceptives, Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, and lupron. Ask what all your treatment options are.
