Hi. Sorry this is a long post. I had my lap last Tuesday and it wasn't half as bad as I thought. I was a bit sore the first day but apart from that it was better then the pain I normally have to cope with. I was really surprised they found no endo. They said I had an adhesion where my appendix scar is and it was attached to my bowel. (This is the right and I have all my pain on the left) They cut this and said everything else looked fine. They showed me photos and said my POD had fluid in the photo but this was just the fluid they put in during the lap (not sure if this is true). I was only asleep for about 45 min and they said they checked everywhere. I'm really upset nothing was found I'm in pain today as I normally am and have no answers. I was seen at a general gynae but do have an appointment in feb to see a specialist so will push to get some help there. Is it possible to have endo deep down in your pod and for them not to check far enough?? It seemed my womb and ovaries were clear!! I know I should be happy they didn't find any but I'm still in pain and never seen to get any answers. I hate it when people (including family) say to me oh well it's probably just ibs and you can't have endo if you have kids!!!! I have at least 2 days a month where I'm screaming on the sofa and nothing helps. I also get a lot of pain with bowel movements and sex is unbearable (yeah I'm sure that's from ibs!!!). I get so much pain in my hip and down my leg I sometimes limp. Sorry for the rant I just want some answers and to start feeling normal. I feel so unfit and exhausted all the time I feel like I'm 90 years old. It's no fun when your 4 year old wants to run round the park chasing you and you can't run because you hurt so much. Please let me know if any of you have had the same situation and any advice xx
