What Affects the Test
Reasons you may not be able to
have the surgery or why the results may not be helpful include:
- If you are obese, which may make the
laparoscopy harder to do.
- If you have scar tissue from another
surgery or an injury.
- If a tissue sample is taken for a biopsy, but
the results are not clear about what the problem is.
