After my operation

Three and a half weeks ago I had a laparoscopy to remove endometriosis from my ovary and Fallopian tube. During the op the coil was also fitted to reduce further risk. Since my op, I have bled constantly sometime quite heavy and still have pain. The hospital gave me no information as to what to expect after the op so I dont know if this is normal. Has anybody else had this op and how was your recovery? I am 18 years old and need some advice. Thank you.

The coil can take time to settle. Mine took 3 months with pain & bleeding most days. The first period was the worst. It's early days for you so try to persevere


Im going for the same op, dr only told me that I will be sore for a few weeks afterwards and gave me a week off at work.


The coil took about 4.5 months to fully settle in my case. The first couple of months were quite bad with heavy bleeding, cramping and so on.

The actual lap - 2 to 6 weeks recovery seems average. A few ladies bounce back very quickly and others take a bit longer depending upon what's been done and their overall state of health.
