I'm 19 and had my first laparoscopy 2 days ago in which they removed endometriosis from my left ovary and Douglas pouch. Obviously I expected to be in pain after the opp but I didn't expect to be in so much pain to the point where I can't even bend down to tie my shoes or lie on my side. Is it normal to be extremely sore? I'm also very swollen to the point where I look pregnant and the left side of my stomach sticks out more (presuming this is from where they removed the Endo) but im just not sure what's normal and what's not. How long till the pain will start to ease?
