I went in yesterday to have my first lap ever, I'll be honest I was bricking it haha. Everyone was so lovely and kind and so accommodating they put the cream on my hands an hour before to numb it as I'm terrified of needles and was told I would be straight in so only waited an hour so went in and the nurse who was with me all the way through was very nice and chatty and the aneasatist was so nice especially with his Scottish accent one minute I was talking the next I woke up. Was very painful so was given some painkillers but became really really itchy was wondering if anyone else had this as apparently it only happens to a few. Had a look at my stomach and I had three holes was so happy as this meant they had found something. I was in recovery for a bit longer cos of the itchiness bout an hour and a half. Went back through to the ward and the specialist asked if I wanted to see the pictures, they were so cool. He showed me where he found a bit, behind my left ovary and behind my right ovary and then showed me where they had cut it out. So basically I have mild endo which usually means you have more pain, and I'm done with the specialist, he said he wouldn't ever need to see me again, which I very much doubt as the scar tissue will probably come back but all in all it was a success, thank you everyone who gave me advice and tips on what I can do you all helped so much.
