Hello, I am due to get my laparoscopy tomorrow and I have a few questions and hopefully someone can help me. I am 24 and live in Scotland. I am not one for visiting my doctor, never have been. I am at this stage now as I had an abnormal smear this time last year which then led to colposcopy, gynae consults and finally an ultrasound which found a 5cm cyst on my right ovary. Now that I am at this point and have been doing my research I am starting to realise I should have gone to gp years ago. I have always suffered from heavy painful periods, back pain, fevers, nausea and fatigue. For the past 6 weeks or so I have now been suffering with headaches, full body pain including hips and legs which keeps me awake and hurts even when walking, restlessness, stabbing pains in my right lower side which have crippled me to the floor twice now and a constant pain in my right side towards the back which feels muscular but has been there for 6 weeks now. I haven't told gp or any hospital doctor of these symptoms. I am a great supporter of our NHS and feel that I don't want to waste anyone's time (silly I know). I'm really ranting on here but I just want to know if anyone with Endo suffers from similar symptoms, as they are checking me for it tomorrow. How best to manage the pain and carry on with a normal life. I have stopped working full time and have no social life anymore, I suffer from anxiety and just like being in my house with my partner and 2 dogs lol! Will I be told the results of lap after recovery before I get discharged? Up until this point I have been messed around and not told very much, my pre op lasted a whole 8 minutes!!! I have had to find out all information myself about ovarian cysts, endo and the procedure. Any advice would be greatly appreciated x
