I had my very first laparoscopy this morning. To my surprise I haves stage 3 endometriosis which was burnt away from my Fallopian tubes and ovaries. One of my ovaries had endo burrowing into it but the surgeon thinks he manger to laser that too. Also had a adhesion from my left ovary to my uterus wall. This was cut away and freed.
My surgeon explained this to my mum as I had a bad reaction coming around from the anesthetiser. Apparently he also apologised and said he never would of thought it as I'm young to get it at 19. I will go back to see him in 2-4 weeks to arrange a plan. I have been told to go on the mini pill non stop until I want to have children, this should stop the endo spreading I guess.
I'm very confused and feel very alone and scared. Even though my mum has been my rock but she can't feel what I can. I am also trying to take it so in as I only got out of surgery at 11.30am my surgery took 1hr and a half. Been feeling very ill all day and in and out of consciousness.
I have been advised to take 7 days off work to recover however I was planning on going back on Monday so I am unsure what to do "/
Any body who has any information or advice I would be very great full! As you all know its nice to be told your not imagining the pain but also devastating when you find something this out!
