I had an emergency laparoscopy and ruptured cyst removal exactly 6 weeks ago, I had been very ill for a while before the op, being sick and fainting frequently, even crashed my car into my fence not smart I know!!
I was in hospital for 3 days in total as I was in a lot of pain and had a nasty reaction to the anaesthetic.
I work as a nursery nurse so quite a full on job and I went back to work this Monday on reduced hours even though my doctor wasn't 100% on me going back yet but I'm bored at home, I'm waiting on a ultrasound scan to check everything is okay inside.
However since going back to work on Monday I have had bad pains in my ovaries and through my scar where they removed the cyst, I'm also having bad back ache and I'm exhausted and emotional all the time! I'm thinking maybe my doctor was right and I'm not 100% ready to go back yet, do you think it would be best for me to stay off until after my ultrasound? How long did it take you to recover after a similar op? I feel like it's taking me ages... I do have chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia so that's not helping.
I hate being off sick and feel like I'm letting everyone down
