I'm looking for some guidance and similar experiences. I had a lap done on April 14 and just had my first period post op. It was excruciating. I had pain akin to labour pains for 2 days. The cramping was ridiculous and I was basically laid out on the couch.
I went for a flexible sigmoidoscopy yesterday as they wanted me to have one while I had my period to try and see where my cyclical rectal bleeding was coming from. They ended up needing to sedate me due to pain of trying to actually get to my sigmoid colon. I was pretty out of it, but he did say he didn't see anything while he was in there.
When they did the lap endo was found on my bowel, bladder, uterus, tubes, ovaries and peritoneal lining. I follow up with my gyne next week to talk about treatment, but I'm pretty frustrated that nothing was seen yesterday.
I am so tired with all this bleeding and pain and testing and surgery and drugs. I am registering with my disability program at work because they are giving me grief about sick time. I'm feeling very done with all of this now!!!
Any ideas? Similar experiences? Words of wisdom? Thanks everyone!!
