Heya, I'm due to go into hospital at 11am, the list starts at 13:30. I'm having excision of the endometriosis, excision of the peritoneal wall, cystoscopy with bilateral stenting. I was diagnosed in July 2013 with 'mild but widespread' endo and had it lasered and have had trouble since.
I'm starting to get nervous now, do you girls have any tips? I've packed my bag but feel like I'm forgetting something.
Instead of a PCA I'm having an epidural for pain relief as it's been recommended for me by a pain specialist, I'm usually very drowsy after a general and I've had problems with the ward I'm being admitted to.
If you've had this surgery what was your recovery like? And how are you now?
The surgeon said I'd be asleep for about 3 hours.
I've also had to have the lovely bowel prep, have been nil by mouth for 14 hours now. can't wait for the next 24 hours to be over with.
Wishing you a comfortable night x
