Hi all, I'm waiting for my 1st Lap, I've had suspected endo for a while but we were using conservative treatment as back to back pill was helping. In May I ended up in hospital in excruciating pain thinking it was my appendix and found out I have a 6cm endometrioma on my right ovary. Since then the pain has been up and down and my bowel movements have been all over the place. Even before this it was pain passing stools/gas on my period that led me to see a gynae but now I've got pain but also I can go for several days without passing to then needing several in a day, often I can go from constipated to very soft in the same day too. The thing that concerns me most is the amount of mucous in a lot of my movements. I have in the past had that when really constipated but now I can get it even with softer stools. Just wondering if this is normal? I'm having my lap with an endo specialist and he's got a bowel surgeon to attend too as he feels there must be bowel involvement. This is the first time I've been scared going into surgery but the risks of possibly needing a resection etc have freaked me out a bit.
For those that have had cysts and stuff off the bowels removed what was your recovery like? Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
