They cut endo away and released some scarring from my bowel. It's hard to explain how I feel I just don't feel right but yet my obs say different ::

U should be passing urine ok before u can be discharged. If they want to send u home ask to speak to someone more senior expressing you are reluctant to go home as u still feel unwell. I did it last time and stayed an extra 24 hours and was much better for it. You know your own body better than anyone else. Good luck x

I was discharged straight after mine! I hadn't been to toilet, hadn't been given a drink or anything! I was also in recovery for over 2 hours due to my body trying to deal with pain, I had twice the amount of morphine given to me! They got me dressed, took me to the car, left the cannula in my hand! so the nurse had to go back up to get gloves and all to remove it! You need to tell them that your not feeling right! otherwise they'll send you home like they did me and its horrible!

hope your ok :)

100% don't let them discharge you! i went private for my laps, the first couple I was in and home the same day, the last time I couldn't pee and I was majorly dehydrated and had drips in me left right and centre! You know your body and you know when your ready! Listen to yourself and don't feel rushed! Xx
