Hi ladies, this is my 1st post I've been reading through lots of other posts and comments and it's been really great for getting to know about my lap and recovery I just wondering if any of you could offer a bit of advice.
I've been in pain since spring last year back and forth to the Drs who finally suggested referring me to gynae, my dr at hospital was wonderful and straight away offered a lap which is on the 5th Feb.
September and October were brutal the pain was constant and drained the life out of me, since then things have settled down and I've noticed over the past few months that I seem to be reasonably ok for 2-3 weeks then have 5 or 6 days of hell which sounds like a normal monthly cycle but as I've been on the Depo injection for years I don't have periods so I don't know if it's just coincidental or my natural cycle fighting to show through? Any thoughts?
My pain ranges from light cramping over lower abdomen to really strong pains in nunny and sometimes my bum too. Shooting pains over my ovaries, pains that feel like somethings in a vice, dull stupid little pains that last all day and leave me exhausted by midday.
Also I've realised recently that if it is endo whilst the surgery will help it's not going to end it and I'm gonna be stuck with this for the foreseeable which is pretty depressing as I've been thinking of my lap as the light at the end of the tunnel. Still terrified I'm gonna come round and be told everything looks ok and no endo and then I'm gonna have gone through it all for nothing.
Bit of a long rambling post I'm sorry but thought I'd put my self out there for you all instead of lurking on the sidelines!
