Hi Loulaura,

I had a Lap in Sept 15 - in part as diagnosis and in part to remove my right ovary which had an cyst. The operation was just an in and out day job. I was operated on around 10 and then discharged around 5pm. The healing process was fine - I had no real pain and the three small incisions healed up without any problems. I reckon the process is pretty similar to what you have experienced before. The positive outcome is that your reassured by having someone confirm whats going on - its the gold standard procedure to identify endo and by taking a biopsy of whatever they remove you can be reassured hopefully that there's nothing more serious going on in there. Look after yourself and I hope your op goes well. Take care.
