no pain until after lap

I underwent a laparoscopy a few weeks ago for fertility investigation, prior to this I knew that I had ovulation issues and I had af's which lasted 5-8 days and slight pain just before they were due, which were manageable. I was told on discharge that all went well and some endo was removed but I would need further surgery to remove a submucous fibroid. During the 1st AF since the lap I have suffered bad backache, extremely heavy flow and stomach pains, all combined the pain is enough to pass out. Never have I felt like this with them, I thought this was how you felt prior to the endo removing.... I have an appointment to see the fertility specialist mid December but left wondering till then, whats next.

had my lap may this year, my periods now are so heavy, painful and last longer (was in dreadful pain a few months after surgery) even regretting the surgery but got better 6 months after, still some mild/moderate endo pain, but nothing like before surgery! as for the horrible periods it gives me hope that my body is normal-ish again, had bad periods before endo appeared, also have an appointment with a fertility specialist in feb, before hand i have to have bloods taken to check all my reproductive system is working as it should, endo is so drawn out, feel for anyone who has this x
