Feeling a little bit lost tonight - had a lap back in February and found out I had endo and my right ovary had got stuck in a pocket of it. Came off pill in July and haven't been feeling right since. Initially had bad cramping like period pain constant for 3/4 weeks then it seemed to disappear so had assumed that it was just my body adjusting, then 3 weeks later pain returned but a different kind of pain, feels the same as before I had the lap, pain in my lower back, right side of my abdomen, hip and buttock (like a dead leg). Was back seeing consultant last week and he thinks my ovary might be trapped again. Had ultrasound today and they couldn't really see anything but that was the same last time round. pain much better the last few days with painkillers (paracetamol and diclofenac - trying to stay off anything stronger as it makes me really spaced out) and wearing a heat patch during the day and hot water bottle at night (heat seems to be the only thing that helps) am now beginning to question myself if it's really as bad as the last time or if I'm just managing to deal with it better and get on with things. So worried that I have another lap and they can't find anything - the last time I was off work for three weeks and it was another 4 weeks before I started to feel normal after that.
