Sorry in advance for the moan.... I had a lap nearly 6 weeks ago now to remove endo and many adhesions. It has been a much slower recovery than I was expecting and I only managed to start going back to work on a part time basis last week. I am finding it still painful to move about. Not excruciating but the kind of tightness/terderness/pain that really drags you down. I'm only taking the painkillers on and off as they tend to make me drowsy and nauseous so that prob isn't helping. I'm trying to stay positive about it but of course my mind goes into overdrive thinking that maybe the endo and adhesions have returned already as it feels no better at all to what it was like before the op. It is particularly uncomfortable driving which I have to do to get to work, esp if I hit a pothole or get some other sudden jolt and also still painful when I go to pee (endo was on my bladder). My poor dogs aren't getting very long walks as I can't walk very far without being sore and uncomfortable. Has anyone else still felt like this after 5/6 weeks? I though by now I wld feel alot better. I'm hoping it is still everything just healing but doesn't stop me worrying! Thanks xx
