Hi everyone, I'm having my first laparoscopy in just over a week as I have suspected peritoneal endo. My consultant says he's 90% sure it's this, and so I will also have it lasered out at the same time. I'm nervous, but relieved as I'm hoping it will ease my chronic pelvic pain along with all the other nasty symptoms we go through.
I was just wondering if anyone else out there could advise on how long I may need off work afterwards? I realise it's dependent on how mild/severe the endo is, and how I react to treatment etc, but what has everyone else experienced? From reading up on it online the 'normal' recovery time looks to be 2 weeks, but I just wanted to check if this is enough time (and also if anyone has any hints/tips for both pre-op and revovery)
Thanks so much! xxx
