I'm currently undiagnosed with lower back and pelvic pain on and off, irregular (amd sometimes extremely prolonged) periods, ibs type symptoms especially around my period, pain during sex on and off and a host of.other things. I received a date for my laparoscopy a week ago and its 23 July. The thing is I really wanted a lap to find out if its Endo but now I have the date I've realised I'm actually freaking out about it. I've never had any kind of general anaesthetic before and I didn't even like having gas and air when I had my 2 kids because I don't like feeling out of control of my body so being put under is really playing on my mind. On told of that I realised I'm really scared they'll find Endo but also really scared they won't and I'll be back to square one. On top of that I have a lump in my abdomen just under my right rib which the doctor things may be a hernia so they said they can take a look while they're in there and I'm stupidly scared they find out its something horrible. I know its silly to worry and the best thing is to have the lap done and hopefully get some answers but I'm worried silly about it and its really playing on my mind. Sorry for such a long post and theres no point to it really other than the fact saying it makes me feel a little better at least :s xx
