Thank you so much Jennifer! That was a great article. I did not see that last night and that one actually made me feel a little better. I plan on calling my dr and talking about it some more before I go through with it though
I looked up a few things as well and saw something mentioned about ovarian drilling I think it was called. It is the safer, less invasive procedure more commonly done now to give relief. Perhaps you can inquire with your doctor about that and why s/he feels that wedge resection is the suggestion. Don't be afraid to call your Dr. office and explain that you have some questions about the procedure after doing some research and would like to speak with the Dr about your questions. Make them explain their thinking and if they can not provide you with an answer that puts your concerns to rest regarding why it is necessary in your case then get a second opinion. If you want children someday and have PCOS, you will not want to do anything that might make it more difficult than it may already be.
Be cautious but ultimately, make the people with the knowledge answer your questions. That is why they are 'your' dr.

I am a little scared of it. I researched nearly all night last night.So far I got that docs rarelly do it anymore because scar tissue. It might effect fertility later. This infertility would be due to your scared ovaries. Right now I just want to stop my pain. But later I would like to try to have children and have a good chance to succeed. I am stuck...I really need to talk to someone who has had it done.
