Hi, I'm new to this site and have found it so helpful. I am due for a laparoscopy on the 5th August, and to be honest I can't wait as the pain I have been going through is debilitating. I have been having ovulation pain that seems to have gotten worse and worse over the last year. My right ovary is the worst, and I am literally struck down with pain when it starts for about 2 days. I take very strong pain killers which barely take the edge off. I have been into hospital a number of times, and they always think appendicits, and then send me home! I have also started to have this on my left ovary too, and the pain radiates into my back and under my ribs and is unbearable. I also get stomach pain, diarrhea etc. When ovulating and when on my period. They found a paraovarian cyst on my right side, and I have finally found an amazing gynae privately who thinks I have endo and it is likely to be on my bowel, ovaries and tubes, due to all the pain. I'm absolutely terrified about the lap, and wanted to ask anyone if they had similar issues, as well as whether anyone was on their period when going for the lap, as I think I will be. Thanks
