Hi everyone, I hope you are all feeling well today!
After waiting over 18 weeks I managed to complain today and was offered surgery on Saturday 20th! Thanks to everyone for your advice, it worked!
This is my first laparoscopy & first surgery as an adult. I have no idea what to expect! I'm not very nervous, maybe just a bit. I've been in pain for so long (undiagnosed for 10 years) so I'm just relieved its happening.
What should I expect from the surgery? Is it likely I'll be kept in over night? What's the pain like after and do you have any advice on what I should ask the doctor after I'm out?
I am taking the pill atm for the endo, normally you should stop the pill before surgery but as its for endo I've been told to stay on it.
I'm also on amitriptyline and Mefenamic (anti-inflammatory) to help with pain. I think I have to stop the anti-inflammatory as its not safe to take before surgery, is that right? And is the amitriptyline safe to keep taking?
Any tips or experience very appreciated, thanks to everyone for all of your help so far!
