Hard to say what happened, Alex. It's years since I last did any gynae. I'd guess that perhaps the first surgeons may have limited what they did in order to try to preserve a greater degree of fertility ? SO much depends on where the endometriosis was growing and intruding. Whatever, they did have an ethical duty to inform your daughter ( and, depending on her age, you her parents ) what exactly they had found, what they had or had not donw, and what the outlook was. SOmetimes that happens but we're too upset and stressed at the time to take it all in, so I generally recommend that they then ask the patient to explain it back to them, to check whether the essence of the message was understood.
On the personal front, presumbaly she deserves to see a good shrink or counsellor to help her cope better, and the new doc will presumably explain to her exactly what he has and hasn't found and what his recommendations are. I don;t recall a procedure for "draining the growths", but do recall that endometriosis can be a stubborn condition to deal with. And surgeons especially, are rarely knwon for doing too little, rather than too much. Maybe best to ask our H24 Gynaedoc for more specific advice.
