I have just joined this group and looking for a little help and advice really.
About 5 years ago I had an ovarian cyst removed from my left ovary, this had been a problem for over a year, rupturing on a monthly basis, which would leave me bedridden for days afterwards. Since my first laparoscopy the pains never completely went away, for the last year or so they have worsened until I had my second laparoscopy on 27th Jan this year.
After my second lap I was told that my left ovary had adhesions of scar tissue which means it was stuck to my pelvis, they cut some of the adhesions but were unable to remove them all without removing the ovary as they are so severe. They also said my left ovary is very small and pale in comparison to my right which likely means it is not working, nothing has been done to my right but there is no test to see if it is damaged. I was also told my womb was full of blood as I had recently had a period and that this was due to endometriosis.
Since the op I am still experiencing pain on a daily basis. I am currently taking the Dianette contraceptive pill and am having my first period since the op, this has been even more painful than usual but I am not bleeding, I have had a few stringy brown clots but am not even needing to use a pad or tampon, this has been for three days now, I am normally quite heavy. i have also been getting more and more pain in my right ovary which is supposedly the healthy one.
After my op I was discharged from gynaecology as in their opinion the operation was a success and I need no further treatment. I am 28 years old and have no children, and am terrified that now I never will. I am concerned that my womb is now just filling with blood again and frightened as to why my right side is now more painful that my left, which is the side I have had all the issues with.
I am planning to visit my GP but have been unable to get an appointment so will now have to wait over the weekend and am worrying myself sick. I would greatly appreciate any advice or information anyone can give me and would like to hear the experiences everyone else has had.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
