I had my first laparascopy in December, with scans showing multiple cysts (polycystic ovaries) and the odd fibroid. The operation showed I had endometriosis which was burned away.
Since the operation, it really doesn't feel like the symptoms have temporarily stopped. Before the operation sex was too painful, but since having done the operation it seems worse? I've stopped altogether, and whenever I've tried it's seems worse than the time before. On top of painful sex...going to the loo is horrendously painful, add that with extremely painful lower back. I'm exhausted with it all!
I've heard a lot of people have a few good months after their operations...but is there anyone who hasn't? At 21, and fairly newly married, did not expect half of this! it doesn't help that I'm also a uni student who's in the middle of exams taking amitriptyline for pain which essentially makes me want to sleep all day and night!
