How can endometriosis be treated?

Q: I am a 28 years old woman. Nine years back, when I was in the fourth month of my pregnancy, I suffered from a severe infection of herpes zoster in my right eye. Consequently, I developed uveitis in the same eye. But, three years ago, I came to know that I have developed cataract too. The doctor suggested me a cataract surgery after six months. My problem is that I have been trying to conceive for the past six years. Can I wait for the surgery for a year because six months back, I underwent laparoscopy for endometriosis? I am afraid that if I go for a cataract removal, then may be I will get endometriosis again. I also want to know that will the doctors give me steroids during or after surgery, which make me infertile. When should I start my infertility treatment after cataract surgery?

A:Pregnancy is possible if you really wish to have a baby- All these are treatable- the endometriosis with drugs available, however the reatment is long, expensive and only after proper evaluation of the stage of the disease. Minor stages can be treated with medicationwhile major stages will need surgical/ laser/ laparoscopic treatment, only , followed by medication, Pregnancy can be planned after that. The chances are no doubt reduced, but not impossible. There maybe an increased risk of abortion, later which too need to be addressed once pregnancy does occur.
