I had a laparoscopy on Tuesday due to months of pain and discomfort. I was originally treated for PID in stepember but all tests came back negative so I don't think it actually was that. Iv been thinking that I have endometriosis for a long time now, having done lots of research and following and reading your posts I have many if not all of the symptoms.
I had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and cysts were found on my ovaries, the biggest being 3cm. This was on my right ovary and was where I had a lot of my pain. The radiographer said at the time she thinks they will probably remove it during the lap.
So Tuesday came, I had my lap. I'm recovering okay BUT this is my issue - I have no idea what happened! My doctor didn't come down to see me afterwards in recovery and because i was in a day care unit at a different hospital to where i am actually under (sort of like the doctor rents the bed for patients that live far away) the nurses had no discharge notes what so ever for me. I was just told 'the doctor will look at photographs and let you know in 6weeks'. One of th nurses was kind and we tried to read the surgery notes , but it was in terrible handwriting. I did spy a line saying 'no endo/PID/lesions'. But this could just have been a certain part e.g left or right ovary. I dont know if the larger cyst was removed. & I don't even know it I have dissolvable stitches or ones that will need removing.
Maybe I was just looking forward to actually getting an answer but I feel so deflated.. This is my body and I don't know what has happened inside of it. Family and friends ask how I got on.. And I can't answer them! I have a surgical wound inside my belly button with stitches and I have a very small wound just at my knicker line that looks like it may have been glued.
Am I right to feel this way?? Is this normal? Did anybody else have to wait 6weeks to be told anything atall about their op???
