Hi everyone, I have recently joined this group as I am due to have a laparoscopy to see if I have endometriosis. I am only 16 and I have been poorly for the last 3 years, the hospital have never known what it has been, iv had cameras, X Rays, ultrasounds, MRI's, hundreds of blood tests and we are still non the wiser. I missed so much school from being poorly an do have recently started college and I am already starting to miss lessons. I am due to have my operation on Wednesday (22nd October) and I am scared out of my wits, this is my 6th operation but my 2nd from being cut open as I have previously had my appendix removed. My surgen said he doesn't know what he will find when he gets in there but will proceed on whatever he finds. They said depending on what they do means my recovery could be anything from 4 days to 4 weeks. I'm so scared and I feel so down, I'm so tired all the time, I have no energy whatsoever, my family and boyfriend are all very supportive but my boyfriend now is finding it hard to deal with. I was just wondering what some of your stories are, how this operation went for you and how your recovery was and how you felt after. I'm sorry for how long this is but thankyou for reading it, I really appreciate it.
