I had a laparoscopy about 4 weeks ago where the doctor burned off 'a medium amount' (his words, I have no idea how much is considered a medium amount!) of endo.
Prior this this I pretty much was symptom free, except that I used to get a really intense pain (that felt like period pain) while running, so they did an exploratory lap and found it and burned it out. Other than the running pain though I was fine, I had pretty bad period pain but it had actually dramatically lessened since I was younger and no other symptoms.
Anyway, the doctor put me on the pill to reduce the chance of the endo coming back. I now seem to have a million problems I never had before the surgery!
I wake up with night sweats nearly every night and I also feel like I'm getting hot flushes randomly.
I also keep getting what feels like period pain but no period (it's not due til next week) It's like the surgery has made everything worse? is this just part of the healing? is the endo coming back?
My specialist doctor charges $250 an appointment so I really don't want to go to him unless I really need to but I'm worried something is wrong.
