Hi everybody i had my first lap to diagnose and treat endo and to remove a 3cm cyst on my left ovary, I was booked in at 730am think i went into theatre about 11am and came round about 1350. My body temp was low and they put like a warm inflatable lilo thing on me to raise my temp. I also got some anti sickness drugs for the nausea and tramadol for the pain.
My partner came to visit me at 1500 due to visiting times on the ward. They told us they wanted to keep me in over night but nothing else. I asked a nurse if she knew what they had found during my lap and she looked at my notes and said they removed my cyst, flushed my tubes and unstuck my organs- all sounded good and my partner went home.
Later on my consultant came to see me and told me i had very severe endo and they couldn't remove it all, they had to cut it down and they have burnt some of it away but it is all over my ovaries and is affecting my fertility. I have been put on zoladex and livial for 6 months to reduce the endo and will have another lap after that to try to remove the rest and then they recommend we try for a baby but there is a possibility we might have to try IVF.
so feeling a bit sore and tired at the moment but just trying to stay positive and look after myself to get better i was prepared for the news i went to GP at the start of this and diagnosed myself and knew it would be severe. Hope everybody is having a good day this site is really important to me and thank you everybody for the support.
