I have recently been told that my consultants (who have suspected endometriosis for quite a long time) want to perform a laparoscopy to investigate and potentially treat what they find. This has come as a slight surprise after years of unresolved symptoms.
Few questions for all you lovelies:
(1) Do any of you have an autoimmune condition too? (I have systemic lupus and am intrigued about whether there is a link)
(2) How long should I take off work? I was provisionally told 1 week if they find nothing, and 2 weeks if they do have to treat. Literature so far seems to say this is a bit quick.
(3) Any tips for recovery and what to have stocked at home or take to the hospital with me?
Thank you in advance to anyone who responds.
