I've just had a laparoscopy carried out last week, which I'm recovering well from but had a mirena coil fitted to help with the heavy painful periods. They have said that I need to give it at least three to six months to settle down, but have been getting really bad period pains which normally sub-side after about an hour but do have to take pain relief to help. Can anyone tell me if this is normal?.
I've been advised that I will need a full hysterectomy which will include the removal of ovaries as well, so will go into surgical menopause and will have to take HRT. I have another consultation in February to find out more etc..
