Just over 2 months ago I had a Laporoscopy Appendectomy. My appendix was removed and I was discharged from the hospital the next day. The surgeon told me that I had an infection inside my appendix so I thought nothing of it and went home to start my recovery. After 2 weeks I was still feeling pain in my pelvic area and my lower abdomen so I went back to the doctors. My GP told me that the biopsy showed nothing to be wrong with my appendix but during the laporoscopy, they found flakes outside my womb, which they had scraped out. (None of this was mentioned to me after my op!) My GP explained Endometriosis to me, but also said that he could not diagnose me. He has referred my to a Gynecologist, but my appointment isn't for another 2 months, in the mean time I am having to deal with this pain and constantly being uncomfortable! I know it's very unlikely but has anyone gone through the same or a similar thing? And does anyone know if it is likely that I will need another Lap?
