It's been a little over 3 weeks since my Laparoscopy to remove my endo, and for the first week I felt delightful and very optimistic. Now after a little time has passed, and I started taking Yasmin, the reality that nothing has really gotten better is sinking in. Unfortunately, I'm still in pain, I still have horrible bowel troubles and my periods are still weird. This present one has been going on for nearly a week and a half which is very strange for me. I'm going to have to accept that maybe it wasn't all the endo and I may still have some way to go before I feel better. I'm also worried that the new pill I'm taking is responsible for the long period, or is it just that they made an incision in my womb when I had my lap? But in typical NHS fashion I will have to wait a few weeks to ask a doctor, I have an appointment on the 23rd- pre-christmas, yay! I also still can't eat gluten or lactose so that seems to be a permanent fixture. So I'm sorry for the miserable post but it's been an eye-opening few weeks, and a little disappointing.
