I hope you are all ok!
I had my lap on Tuesday and after having a reaction to the painkillers and feeling really awful, I am now finally starting to feel more human again! Yay!
When my surgeon came to see me after the surgery she told me they found absolutely no endo and only one large adhesion no where near the site of my pain, but I should go to see my specialist again. I was gutted and almost heartbroken to have no answers still. And quite confused as to why I need to see the specialist again if there was nothing there.
However, when I got home and read my discharge notes, the surgeon had noted that "pelvic vessels appeared very congested"
So I googled it and only found pelvic congestion syndrome, a big cause of pelvic pain basically caused by varicose veins all around the pelvic organs. Ouch!
Apparently it's very rare to find in a lap due to the blood flow being restricted while sedated.
So I have a few questions for you lovely people... Does anyone else have this?
Or have any info/ good sites/ forums on the syndrome?
Has anyone else been treated for this?
And does anyone know why the surgeon didn't mention this to me but still put it in my notes?
Any info would be very much appreciated....
