Hospital appointment post-op. questions I should ask?

my emotions are all over the place at the moment ever since my op. I'm due a hospital trip tomorrow to discuss the endo that was found, treatments etc. just wondering if you could advise me what questions I should be asking. I've thought of a few things I'd like to ask but I'm becoming more worked up and upset over what I'll be told and my mind will go blank. Any advise welcome, feeling numb, depressed and isolated from everyone over this whole thing. Due back at work and no idea how I'm going to cope either x

Is there anyone that can go with you? I always make a list of what I want to discuss as like you, I can forget what I wanted to ask. I would ask what they found, what they did, whether they had to leave any (they could not remove alot of mine), where the endometriosis still is (my consultant drew me a picture), tell them about any symptoms you are experiencing (pain, problems with bladder/ bowel if any), treatment options now and for the future. I guess I've listed these on what I thought about for my last op - so you've probably already thought about a lot of them. Hope that's helpful.
