Hope you are all as well as can be at the mo. I had my 3rd lap 2 weeks ago. My consultant said he didn't see any new Endo anywhere but could see where I had it all excised last year.
I had a presacral neurectomy which is cutting of the nerves to the uterus and also had the coil fitted. I have adenomyosis and interstitial cystitis in my bladder.
I'm just wondering how long it takes for the coil to ease, I'm getting awful contractions that are lasting between 2-4 hours and just come and go when they please there is no pattern. I'm surprised I'm getting contraction pains as the nerves have been cut so I thought I wouldn't feel anything. I've read online that it takes 3 months for the presacral neurectomy to work (not sure why cos if the nerves are cut wouldn't it work straight away) and 3-6 months for the coil to calm down. Has anyone had the same experience and did the pain calm down? If this doesn't work my only next stage is a hysterectomy, I'm 32 and no children. So I am trying my best to just get on with the pain but if the pain doesn't ease I won't be able to keep the coil in. I know it's early days so I'm just trying my best to put up with the contractions.
Also I've not been able to empty my bladder since the surgery. I am able to go a little but not much and there is always loads when I use the self cathetar. Has anyone else had this and did your bladder just return to normal?
I know it's only 2 weeks but I feel like it was 2 months ago. Any advice would be great xx
