I'm new to this site and just wondered if anyone had an idea of timescales for feeling better after surgery.
After being in pain for years I have recently had a laparoscopy where they found and excised both adhesions and endometriosis nodules. I'm on day 12 post op now and whilst the pain is nothing like it was im still quite sore where my wounds are in the bottom section of my tummy, and I have some deeper aches that I think are menstrual related as my period will be due next week.
I've had some guidance from the hospital - no lifting for four weeks, and drive 'when I can do an emergency stop' but I just wondered how long it's taken other people to get back on their feet!?
Compared to the csection I had 6 years ago this is absolutely nothing, and the pain I have now is also not a patch on how I felt before the operation.
But i am impatient to get back to normal life as soon as possible and just wondered what other people have experienced!?!?
Thanks for reading,
