I had a laparoscopy and removal of a ruptured ovarian cyst exactly 2 weeks ago today, I am due to go back to work next week (I'm a nursery nurse in a baby/toddler unit which involves a lot of carrying, lifting and sitting on the floor) I am really looking forward to going back but I'm not sure if I'm ready yet, my pain is a lot better now although I can still feel it if I lift things or if my puppy or someone pushes against my stomach but the main symptom I'm having now is extreme fatigue!! I am so exhausted after doing anything and am very emotional.
Also since my op my gums and teeth have been very sensitive and a bit swollen, I have a dentist appointment booked for Monday but has anyone else experienced that?
How long was you off work for after your surgery for endo or any other gyneo op? I feel bad being off and money is also a worry as I only get statutory sick pay!
