I had my 2nd lap last Wednesday. I had my 1st over 14 years ago to remove an ovarian cyst. This time, after having been back and forward to docs over many years, I had a few things done at once. I had: Laparoscopy to remove cyst; colposcopy, hysteroscopy, biopsy, cryotherapy, and lasor treatment. I was in surgery for over 2 1/2 hours. When I came round, i was wheeled into a day ward. No-one spoke to me. I was in so much pain in my shoulder, ( which I knew to expect), but also in my chest. I was told to get up and get dressed after 1/2 an hour. I was given a small cup of water. I felt totally out of it. I asked what had been found during surgery, and the nurse said she wasn't sure, but that they had found endometriosis. I was then taken to a waiting room and told to text my partner to come and collect me. I was in so much pain. Felt dizzy, weak, still feeling effects of anesthetic. I just couldn't believe that I was being sent home less than hour after surgery! I asked a nurse for some more water, who then asked if I was ok. I said NO! I was put back on a bed for 5 minutes till my partner came for me.
It is now Monday, and I'm still in a lot of pain. I am losing a lot of blood, and feel very weak. I have had my appointment to see my consultant - 1 May!!! OMG. I am totally appalled at this whole procedure. I have had no information about what to expect after all this surgery. I am popping the paracetemol and ibuprofen to try and ease the pain. I have always suspected endometriosis, but never had it diagnosed. I have been getting contraction like pain the past few days. This is excruciating! Has anyone else experienced this? I feel so alone with all this. Just because all you can see is 2 small wounds on my belly button and lower tummy, there is so much more going on inside. I feel like i have been stamped on by a bull!!! Wasn't like this last time.
Just been to docs and they were horrified. Have been given Metronidazole and told total bed rest!
