I had my first laparoscopy 5 weeks ago after suffering with lower abdominal and back pain for a good few months. GP originally thought it was urological issues so I had a cystoscopy which came back clear. After my first appointment with the gynaecologist he prescribed me mebeverine and passed it off as IBS. When I went back and explained the tablets had made no difference he booked me in for the lap. Recovery from the lap took much longer than I thought and I was left clueless as to what had happened after as the Dr came round to see me straight after they had given me some morphine! Don't remember much!
Anyway, I had my follow up appointment today and have been told that I have PCOS and that my bowel is attached to my left ovary with adhesions. He said that because of my age (25) he didn't want to do the surgery to detach them as it could cause fertility issues and possible complications with my bowel. He has told me to continue with pain killers and try to get on with life! Oh and to have a baby as soon as possible!
Is any one else in or has been in this situation? Has anyone had the surgery? Did it help with your symptoms?
I feel much better for know exactly what is going in now but I've come away a little confused. Not really sure what the next step is!
Thanks for any advice!
