Having laparoscopy due to painful intercourse doc thinks loads of scar tissue and adhesions from previous c-sections. Scared of having the surgery?

In brief: Normal

Its normal to be afraid of having an operation.
While everything has risk, the chance of something bad happening is very, very low. The chance of having some pain relief is overall about 60-70% when considering all patients undergoing laparoscopy for pain. So the odds are in your favor that it will help, and there won't be complications. Hope this helps!
