I had a laparoscopy over 6 weeks ago and the surgeon found quite severe endometriosis on both of my ovaries. My left ovary was stuck to my pelvic wall and had to be freed. Endometriosis was found on the uteroviscal fold; all of it removed that using a plasma jet laser. I also had a cyst on my left ovary and a polyp in my uterus removed.
I'd been suffering bad pain, sickness and periods for years, in and out of hospital having undergone countless tests but never got a diagnosis. Until I woke up in horrific lower left sided pain during my period in April - so bad I would have gone to the hospital only I was so ill and live on my own that I couldn't physically get off the bathroom floor. The pain continued but luckily through work I have medical insurance and I was seen privately by a gynaecologist.
The problem is I have been in significant abdo and lower back pain ever since the operation. Not even prescribed painkillers kill the pain. I haven't returned to work and I'm so stressed because I can't see any benefit from the surgery at all. I'm on the combined pill and have had breakthrough bleeding for 11/12 days now. I spend my days resting in bed.
People keep asking me when I will be better and I could cry.. I just don't know if I'm healing properly. I should also mention that I am recovering from scarlet fever and a UTI as well. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thank you xx
