I am due to have a laparoscopy on the 25th April. I've had nearly a month off work and have been suffering in pain for months. I will have to go back to work up until my operation and then have at least a week off then. I don't know how people who suffer in this much pain can still actively work normally after recovering from the surgery. I work with children in a nursery and that is a very active role. I'm just very scared and worried.
