I had my lap around 3 months ago where they found endo scarring in left ovarian fossa, endo in right ovarian fossa and adhesions sticking my stomach to the fat in my abdominal wall and a small cyst on the end of one of my tubes. The adhesions were freed up and the endo removed and after 3-4 weeks recovery I started to feel so much better and began living a pain free life.
The past week the pains have been coming back with avengance starting with pain around my ovaries as the days passed turning into full blown very angry period type pain. The exhaustion seems to have returned and like pre op I've been too worn out to do anything once I've over exerted myself - eg errands in town/ nursery run. I saw my GP yesterday who was quite surprised at how quickly the pain had returned and has prescribed tramadol to help with the pain (for me paracetamol and ibuprofen do nothing and codine sends me loopy). My partner and I will be TTC soon so there wasn't really any other option for me which i had guessed before hand.
All in all feeling very emotional about it all and feeling like I got a bit cocky with myself in being symptom free. This post has been a bit like therapy in a way but I wonder has anyone been in a similar situation? I'm on the pill now, currently on day 10 of my second cycle after accidentally missing my Depo shot in Feb, and at the end of the 3rd cycle there will be no more as we will be trying to conceive, I'm now terrified of coming off the pill as I know that's working at suppressing everything. Due to the Depo I'm only just in the time frame for fertility returning and my partner and I are both very aware this could be a long road ahead of us which will be hard enough emotionally without the added nightmare of the endo and no hormones or treatments to suppress it.
