Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and to the world of Endometriosis.After having suffered with pain for many years,i finally got told it appears to be endometriosis and put on the pill which made me Ill and painkillers. I was then referred to see a gynaecologist who after discussion said it looks like I have endometriosis and suggested a laparoscopy to diagnose and treat at the same time. I had surgery last week and it was confirmed that endometriosis was found and removed and no further follow up was required due to not knowing when it'll come back etc. I was fitted with a mirena coil to help with pain after surgery.
I had to stay for three days due to vomiting and low bp and being tachy but I'm slowly recovering at home now,although I'm still in a lot of pain a week later and feel so exhausted. I'm able to urinate but it can be a bit painful and I'm still heavily bloated from the surgery.
No real aftercare was given when being discharged but I've cleaned the wounds and applied clean dressings. I was concerned as one was leaking and it was red but after a nurse appointment a couple of days ago, I was told it was fine and generally it's really the navel one which has a risk of infection.
I was told to remove them in a few days so after showering I didn't replace them. However whilst getting changed I noticed discharge from the navel and I'm unsure whether it's fine it not or whether it's just not been dried properly ?
I feel really let down after surgery with lack of knowing where I stand etc and it's so confusing. Ant advise would be appreciated x
